Lab Supplies for Sprout Production
During the sprout industry’s transition from Agriculture to Food Processing, ISS has been a pioneer in establishing laboratory testing procedures and HACCP plans. An in house lab can save a sprout grower thousands of dollars. ISS offers laboratory equipment and supplies in small quantities, saving you the expense of large initial orders. The pathogen tests ISS offers have been selected for accuracy and ease of use. We offer technical support to our customers.

Pathogen Test Kits and Supplies
E.coli 0157:H7 Test Kit
International Specialty Supply carries rapid response test kits for E-Coli 0517:H7. After testing several types, we use and carry the test kit that we feel is the most reliable, most practical, and best for the sprouting industry.
The ImmunoCard STAT!, produced by Meridian Technologies, has been developed using a new approach to overcome detection difficulties. In the past, strategies for detection of this organism have relied mainly on the identification of the 0157 antigen. However, there are strains of E-coli 0157, such as 0157:H3 and 0157:H12 that are completely harmless.
A wrong reading is incredibly expensive to sprout growers. It triggers an unnecessary recall that can cost thousands of dollars in recalled product and tarnish a company’s’ name and reputation.
The ImmunoCardSTAT! E-Coli 0157:H7 test is a fast, flexible and accurate test for the detection of Escherichia coli 0157:H7 in food products.
Each kit contains 30 tests, positive and negative controls and 40 transfer pipettes. Materials not included are flasks, autoclave, timer, scales, enrichment broth and an incubator.
This highly specific test is not prone to give false positives like other rapid tests on the market. Filtration and centrifugation steps are not required. See results 10 minutes after broth enrichment.
Kit size: 30 determinations Controls: Included in kit
Storage: 2-27oC (36-81oF) Shelf Life: 10 months
