  • pure and mixed cultures in liquid media
 
Operating hygienic inspections
 
  • personnel
  • utensils, laboratory surfaces
  • air
  • gases
DNA-Fingerprints
  • Documentation of shifts in the composition of microbial communities
  • Testing of pure cultures
  • Testing of production strains
  • Characterisation of bacterial cell banks
Suitability tests of media
