Rapid microbiological methods at BAV Institute

A very special new launch is planned for 2020. The BAV Institute is working on the development of a semi-quantitative analysis method which detects Listeria spp. and Listeria monocytogenes in food within 6 hours!


The BAV Institute offers accredited and validated rapid methods for the most relevant microbiological test parameters in food, in addition to the classical ISO methods.


This is especially true for classic pathogenic bacteria such as:

  • Salmonella in 24h
  • Listeria spp. and Listeria monocytogenes in 24h
  • STEC/EHEC in 24h
  • Cronobacter spp. in 24h
  • Thermophilic Campylobacter in 48h


BAV also offers rapid methods for quantitative analysis parameters:

  • Presumptive Bacillus cereus in 24h
  • Coagulase-positive staphylococci in 24h
  • Yeasts and moulds in 72h


The results for germ identification and confirmation using Maldi-Tof are available within a few minutes!

In connection to the online sample portal, where customers can call up all partial and final results at any time, BAV offers a unique service package for fast and reliable test results.
