  Techne PCR Detection Methods for Flavour Spoilage Yeast Could Prevent Large Economic Losses Within the Wine Industry

Bibby Scientific announced today that it has launched a Techne PCR-based method for reliable and highly specific detection of the yeast, Dekkera bruxellensis, which is a major cause of wine spoilage worldwide, causing large economic losses within the global wine industry.

Techne Prime Pro 48 and PCR kit Flavour-spoiling phenolic compounds released from this yeast lead to undesirable aromas, known as ‘Brett’ taints, that are normally associated with aromas of barnyard, burnt plastic, wet animal and horse-sweat. Detection of the yeast through traditional microbiological techniques can be time-consuming, costly and unreliable. In contrast, real-time or quantitative PCR-based detection methods allow for exceptionally rapid and highly...


  Dekkera bruxellensis 26S ribosomal RNA

Dekkera bruxellensis (D. bruxellensis) is a yeast native to the Belgian Senne valley located near Brussels. It is a hemiascomycetes yeast, meaning primitive and morphologically simple, with an absent or poorly developed mycelium and no formation of hyphae.

TechneIts genome size ranges from under 20 to over 30 mega base pairs (Mb). The asexual reproductive form in the life cycle of this organism is known as Brettanomyces bruxellensis (B. bruxellensis), one of several members of the genus Brettanomyces. In the wild this microorganism lives on the skins of fruit and plays a key role in the production of Belgian Lambic style beers. Belgium’s beer and wine tradition is no newcomer to the alcoholic beverage industry. Belgium’s monastic, spontaneously fermenting lambic wheat beer family predates the pitching of yeast by brewers, whilst fermenting of beers with cherry (Kriek) and raspberry (Framboise) and spiced white brews predate the hop....


  New Techne Prime Pro qPCR Reagent kits and Prime Pro 48 qPCR System

Techne now offer over 400 qPCR detection / speciation kits suitable for any qPCR instrument. Techne qPCR reagent kit contents are lyophilised (freeze dried) enabling ambient shipping which reduces shipping costs and freight complexity.

The Prime Pro range of probe-based qPCR kits is the largest available. However, all 400 Techne qPCR kits share only 2 protocols (1 for DNA and 1 for RNA). To use the kits, combine the components and introduce your DNA/RNA before placing into your qPCR instrument. For convenience, each kit is available with and without master mix.
