Germ Free

Bacterial Evaluation & Remediation Reports

As an individual part of an international group of affiliates with various specific skill sets, Germ Free offers a range of bio management solutions tailored to your requirements.

Germ Free / Bio-Management Reports:

  • Germ Free Surveys & Reports are designed to adhere to and work within EU, FDA, EPA, Halaal, Kosher, ISO as well as required local and international guidelines and standards.

  • Germ Free Bio-Burden Surveys are certified by independent internationally accredited laboratories.

  • Germ Free installs a Zone Managements System utilizing our QR coded test plates for the monitoring of bacteria within your facility..

  • Integration of our bacteria testing, recording and monitoring software is part of this service.

  • A minimum of 8 Zones will be set up and studied over a 1-month period with comparison control test plates.

  • Each Zone is tested weekly to create sufficient data to identify high pathogen count areas…

  • Thereby enabling Germ Free Bio-Management Solutions to design an ongoing protocol to increase the protection from pathogens within your facility.

Germ Free / Bio-Burden Surveys initially meter and identify pathogen problems in:

  • All Packaging facility line management, cleaning protocols and processes.

  • Facility building, machinery and equipment.( and maintenance thereof )

  • Worker contamination and contagion assessment throughout the processing line.

  • Processing equipment. Fruit wash / water pools, conveyors etc.

  • Farm, and or transport machinery, processes, and equipment including plastic protection,

  • Cover-alls and worker uniforms.

  • Final packing processes, supplies, boxes, films and protectors.

  • Shipping containers.

This 1 month survey includes a full report of Pathogen problems within the facility tested. Including an estimate for the costs and volumes of the specific Germ Free Antimicrobial products required along with a forecast of efficacy results.

This Bio-Burden Survey Report will take into account and apply to:

  • Bacteria problem identification (General Bio-Burden Count- Specie-Specific)

  • Bio-Zone Formation and Management / Remediation Protocols

  • Packing Protection Systems and antimicrobial usage protocol design for work-line incorporation.

  • Worker decontamination protocols with projected costs and benefits.

  • Identification of correct Germ Free product usage and dilutions throughout facility and production chain.

  • Produce and product shelf life extension forecast

  • Estimated reduction in produce loss due to bacterial contamination.

  • Best practice method for the Integration of Germ Free Antimicrobials within existing management protocols.
