ISO 11133:2014 - culture media for food and water testing


Merck has issued a useful white paper on the testing of microbiological culture media. The paper is titled “EN ISO 11133:2014 Quality-assured culture media for food and water testing to enhance consumer safety.” The paper is written by Barbara Gerten, Application Training Scientist at Merck Millipore.

EN ISO 11133:2014 replaces the former Technical Specifications EN ISO TS 11133-1:2009 Preparation of culture media and EN ISO TS 11133-2:2003 Performance testing of culture media, both for food and feed microbiology. It will also supersede ISO 9998:1991 Requirements for microbiological media for water testing.
