The impact of EN ISO 11133: A mandatory standard for culture media

EN ISO 11133:2014 is a mandatory for all accredited laboratories that perform microbiological testing of food, animal feed or water using culture media. The standard clarifies procedures and draws a clear line between the responsibilities of the laboratories and the manufacturers/suppliers of culture media regarding media preparation, production, storage and performance testing.

This white paper focuses on the differences to ISO/TS 11133-1 and -2, which it has replaced, and discusses the implications of the new standard for food, beverages and water testing laboratories.
