Our Beer Testing Solutions

Great tasting beer deserves the very best in quality control.

Why you should use it

Minimize risks, save time and money

Taking the right precautionary measures is pivotal to the brewing process and ultimately the quality and taste of your beer. With our custom-designed, real-time PCR beer screening kits, 31 of the most important beer-spoiling bacteria are detected in a single PCR reaction. Unlike traditional microbiology that takes days to grow microorganisms on a petri dish, our straight-forward and easy-to-use methods work in all typical sample matrices from breweries and in just a few hours.

Better Brewing with the Oculyze BB 2.0

Determine the cell count of brewer’s yeast in the shortest time and directly on site with the help of the Oculyze Better Brewing (BB) 2.0. The hardware/software combination consists of a light, portable microscope weighing less than 200 g with a high-quality Zeiss optical system (400 x magnification) and a user-friendly app.
The microscope connects directly to your Android mobile phone or tablet. To determine the volume of the pitching yeast, photos are taken at different areas of the measuring chamber and uploaded to the Oculyze cloud server. In a matter of seconds, the data is processed and made available to you as a result.
