Indicators of lack of hygiene (Escherichiacoli, Staphylococcusaureus)
Pathogens (Salmonella, Listeria spp and Listeria monocytogenes):
All of this allows us to evaluate the general state of the surfaces while work is going on or after cleaning and disinfection.
Analysis of cosmetics
With the aim of being able to evaluate contamination of a cosmetic product and while observing Spanish and international recommendations, we carry out the following analyses:
Indicators (Aerobic micro-organisms, Fungi and Yeasts): this allows us to evaluate both the raw material and the proper state of operation of the self-monitoring process of the establishment.
Pathogens (Escherichiacoli, Staphylococusaureus, Pseudomonas aeuroginosa and Candidaalbicans): the presence of these micro-organisms may involve infections on the skin or the eyes of consumers
In cosmetics, we carry out studies of anti-microbial properties of cosmetic products by adding different strains to them and evaluating whether a certain micro-organism grows in the product being investigated, which it is very useful to know.
