Spring is a beautiful season for all things to recover.The upcoming May Day holiday is another good time for outing and traveling in spring. Traveling inevitably has to taste delicious food and stay in a hotel. Even though the market supervision of disposable tableware has been underway, in February 2021, Xuhui District Market Supervision Administration notified 1 batch of tableware unqualified; March 2021, Putuo District notified 6 batches of tableware unqualified and Qingpu notified 4 batches. (The information comes from China Quality News Network "www.cqn.com.cn" )
Refer to "GB 14934-2016 National Food Safety Standard Sterilizing Meal (Drinking) Utensils Appendix A"
Sampling of chopsticks: Take 5 chopsticks as a sample. Smear evenly on the surface area of 5cm at the end of the chopsticks 3 times, cut off the part in contact with the hand with sterilized scissors, and put the rayon swab in the corresponding liquid medium for inspection.
Use ST-25PBS for disposable chopstick sampling
Sampling of other tableware: use rayon swabs moistened with sterile normal saline, apply the entire square back and forth evenly on two 5cm*5cm (25cm2) areas respectively, and then use sterile scissors to cut off the part in contact with the hand. Finally put the rayon swab in the corresponding liquid medium for inspection.
ANKE Bio swab sampler (swab sampling kit) has become the world's first microbiological test kit that has obtained Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) certification. With the use of disposable sterile sampling template, it can directly inspect tableware and control the sanitary condition of tableware. Compared with ANKE swab sampler, the traditional cotton swab sampling method needs to sterilize the cotton swab, liquid culture medium, and sterile water in advance in the process of market supervision, and cannot respond to food safety emergencies. In the process of test collection, the traditional cotton swab sampling method must first arrange the sampling point, take out the sterile cotton swab, drip sterile water to moisten the cotton swab, smear the sampling area, transfer to the liquid medium, use scissors to cut the part in contact with the hand to complete the collection of samples. The aseptic operation requirements are strict step by step, and the requirements for sampling personnel are also high. Once aseptic operation errors occur, there is a great risk of false positives. However, using the swab sampling kit can immediately participate in the emergency response and arrive at the scene for sample collection in the shortest time. On-site sampling only requires 3 steps: arrange the sampling point, directly take out the cotton swab to smear, and put it back into the kit to complete the sampling. The sample collection is easy to operate with lower risk of aseptic operation, and it is not easy to cause false positives.
When we travel, we cannot avoid staying in hotels. Towels, sheets, pajamas and other public utensils in the hotel should be in accordance with "GB/T 18204.4-2013 Hygienic Inspection Methods in Public Places Part 4: Microbiology of Public Utensils and Utensils Appendix A".
Towel sampling: Apply 5 times within the area of 5cm*5cm (25cm2) in the center after folded once.
Sheets: apply 5 times within the area of 5cm*5cm (25cm2) where the neck and footsteps are in contact;
Pajamas: Randomly select 2 spots and apply 5 times within the area of 5cm*5cm (25cm2);
Bathtub: apply within the area of 5cm*5cm (25cm2) in the center of the basin bottom and half of the height of the side wall in the bathtub;
Foot basin: smear within the area of 5cm*5cm (25cm2) on the two opposite side walls of one-half of the height of the basin;
Toilet cover: Apply 2 pieces of 5cm*5cm (25cm2) on the curved part of the front part of the toilet circle, etc.
Swab sampler (ST-25PBS) and 5*5, 5*10 disposable sterile sampling template
Use ANKE Bio swab sampler (swab sampling Kits) in conjunction with disposable sterile sampling template to inspect public health supplies and control the sanitary condition of public health products. At the same time, companies can also use sampling kits to monitor the personnel hands and the clean and sterilization process to prevent cross-contamination. Solve customers' worries and devote themselves to the spring trip.
