Webinar Details

Midwest Microbio will discuss their new, industry-leading solutions and techniques to rapidly detect common beer spoilers in the craft brewing production process.


  • Innovative tools and processes that enable every craft brewer to improve sensitivity down to 1 cell/ml
  • 3x faster time to result compared to current testing methods - less than 1 hour vs. 3 to 4 hours
  • How to reduce testing costs by 20x compared to current methods with the ability to screen for all beer spoilers for under $4 dollars

The same technology (rapid real-time PCR) being utilized to detect viruses and pathogens such as Flu or COVID-19 in humans is now being deployed in Craft Breweries around the country to help detect and fight infected production lines more effectively. This results in earlier detection in the production process which enables more favorable economic outcomes.

Join us to see how breweries such as Fat Head's Brewery, Octopi Brewing, Masthead Brewing Co., and many others, are using this new standard in quality to upgrade their lab and to ensure high quality, great craft beers.
