IC-Gene brings the power of molecular biology in the vineyard and in the cellar. It allows a rapid detection of spoilage microorganisms (i.e. Brettanomyces, Botrytis). The analysis is based on a new PCR reaction, with improved sensitivity and specificity that reduce time of the assay and false outcome. Thanks to it easy execution and real time results, this method can be done ON SITU, directly from the matrix (wine, berries, waters, etc.). Low cost and the easy reproducibility allow to manage the flow of the winery in complete safety. Ten different samples can be processed simultaneously, and the time required is less than 2 hours.
We recommend IC-gene for:

  1. Identify unnoticed Botrytis contaminated must. If recognized, you can avoid negative organoleptic effects.
  2. Test wine samples, rinsing water and wood surfaces to keep your winery free from Brettanomyces.
  3. (NEW) Detection of harmful bacteria in storage water.

The ID-Gene analysis kit consists of:

  • DNA amplification device
  • Remote control Tablet
  • Centrifuge
  • Pipettes
  • Reagent kit for the analysis
  • Tubes & Tips
