Become a leader in quality, and upgrade your lab to equipment trusted by the best labs and breweries


Quantitative Polymerase Chain Reaction (qPCR) is the best method for detecting beer spoilers.
See how our system gives you all the tools necessary to have a comprehensive quality assurance program.

  • Fast Results

    Using our protocols and magnetic induction thermocycler, get results within one hour, 3x faster than any other system on the market.

  • Industry-Leading Detection Thresholds

    Detect yeast and bacteria down to one cell per mL without enrichment, providing you with immediate answers.

  • Built for a Modern Brewery

    Brewing hoppy beers? Fruited beers? Using crazy adjuncts? We can handle that and more, with no false negatives or positives. You have full control to see what's in your beer at any stage of the process, regardless of beer style.

  • High-Throughput Testing

    With 48 wells, you can test up to 12 samples at once with our Core Four Assay in under an hour. Test everything from several fermentors to rows of barrels all at once.

  • Significant Cost Savings

    For under $2 total with our industry-leading Core Four Assay, screen a sample for highly and poorly diastatic yeasts, hop resistant bacteria, and Brettanomyces.
