Abstract

The dairy industry needs rapid microbiological methods for different areas: starting with the assessment of the bacteriological quality of herd bulk raw milk, and ending with the bacteriological examination of heat-treated milk and milk products. Microbiological analyses contribute to the safety of milk and milk products. To ensure this safety the following selected rapid and/or mechanized methods, are described and evaluated.
