QAC Test Strips for Food Safety and Sanitation

New Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) guidelines are strengthening the food safety system and emphasizing the need for establishing, monitoring and verifying safety/sanitation programs. This includes proper sanitation practices throughout all aspects of food production including growers, processors and food service facilities.

Serim’s QAC test strips were specifically developed for the food industry and measure concentrations of Quaternary Ammonium Compound (QAC) used to sanitize food processing and serving equipment as well as facilities. Recommended QAC concentrations vary depending upon the type of equipment and federal or state regulations. Properly using, testing and verifying sanitizing solutions is an important element of all successful sanitation programs.

Designed for use in a wide range of applications, our QAC test strips are compatible with first through fourth generation commercial brand QAC solutions with the exception of Hyamine 1622.
