The science of ActeroHow does it work?

Actero Enrichment Media answers the food industry’s need for a more efficient safety testing process by offering the fastest time-to-results in the bacteria growth phase available on the market today.

Universally compatible with any pathogen testing system, the Patented Actero Enrichment Media is a groundbreaking enhanced formulation that significantly reduces pathogen testing incubation and enrichment time without compromising the ability to produce accurate test results. Specifically, it makes the timeline for the sample enrichment growth phase up to 30% faster for E. coli and Listeria, and up to an amazing 70% faster for Salmonella.

While other pathogen tests require multiple enrichments, longer incubation times and more media per sample, FoodChek has created a media testing system that combines these requirements into a more efficient, single-step enrichment process, compatible with ANY pathogen testing system and guaranteed to increase productivity and product fresh shelf life!
