VLB Training Applied Microbiology 2023
You are looking for a comprehensive but compact training course on industrial microbiology? You believe that learning face-to-face in a group of international colleagues is more beneficial than studying alone in front of a computer or a textbook? − If so, think about attending the seminar “Applied Microbiology” of VLB Berlin!
Course outline „Applied Microbiology“
“Applied Microbiology” is a 5-day full-time training course providing up-to-date knowledge in the field of practical microbiology with relevance for the brewing resp. beverage production. It covers the basics of microbiology, laboratory techniques, as well as microbial sampling in theory and practice. The course is conducted in VLB’s microbiological training laboratory and in our pilot brewery.
Who should attend?
The course addresses persons who work in the field of quality control in breweries, malt houses and beverage production. We recommend a basic knowledge of the brewing processes in general since this course will focus on the relevant microbiology only.
- Introduction to microbiological lab-work and analysis
Characterisation, classification and identification of microorganisms with relevance to beverages, PCR, Flowcytometry
- Microbiology lab work: Sample preparation / analytics
Preparations for light-microscope examinations, cell counting, staining, plating, sterilization, disinfection, etc.
Yeasts, bacteria, molds (morphological and physiological characteristics)
- Nutrient media
Different types, preparation, incubation, evaluation
- Microbiological quality control
Sampling, different products, detection of contaminants, appraisal of results, microbial sampling in the brewery, weak points in breweries, hygienic design and cleaning, yeast management
- With reference to beer and other fermented beverages (e.g. Kombucha)
The course will be held at VLB Berlin. You can expect a mixture of lectures and practical work in the microbiological training laboratories.
VLB Berlin is a Bio-PAT member.
