Alkaline phosphatase is an enzyme naturally present in raw milk. It is an excellent indicator to verify completeness of proper milk pasteurization. Charm Alkaline Phosphatase Tests measure phosphatase activity via a selective substrate whereby the hydrolyzed product from the enzyme reaction generates a luminescence signal which is then interpreted by a Charm luminometer.
PasLite is an excellent fit for dairy HACCP as it determines pasteurization problems long before they reach a level of critical concern and can deliver results in under four minutes. No reagent preparation or warm-up time is required, and multiple samples can be run simultaneously.
Charm F-AP Test is the fastest available phosphatase method to verify the completeness of pasteurization in milk products. The simple one-step procedure requires no reagent preparation and delivers results in just 45 seconds for most products.
