Food industry

The food industry market is run by some important standards (HACCP, BRC, ISO 22000).

 

Gosselin offers a complete range of solutions and it is an essential partner for all companies which run their business on the food industry.

 

Gosselin proposes a wide range of solutions from in-process sampling to internal or external laboratory analysis.

Sampling

Dippers with removable handle Polypropylene from 40 to 180 ml:  

 

 

Those dippers are used in order to take liquid, semi liquid or powder samples on the occasion of analysis made in the same dipper avoiding as a result cross contamination.


Dippers are manufactured in blue polypropylenes which allow locating promptly if they fall by accident during a sampling.

Indeed those dippers are used mostly in the food industry sector because the blue is a color which is not present naturally in food.

Thanks to its handle in blue polypropylene (PP) it is possible to take a sample without touching the medium for the one who is making analysis.


Once the sampling is made, all you have to do is to release the dipper from the maintaining ring and send the sample to the laboratory for analysis.

Straight container with hinged cap from 35 to 300 ml:


Those containers are used to take liquid, semi liquid or powder samples.

 

The hinged cap is designed in order to hold vertically after the container’s opening which eases the handling for the one making analysis; one hand use.

 

This product is manufactured with a resistant polypropylene in aseptic conditions. This container is available in blue or natural color.

 

The blue ones have the advantage being perfectly visible in sampling medium if they fall inadvertently in the tank.

 

Containers manufactured in polypropylene can easily surface in aqueous liquid.

Most of our containers have a written surface in order to improve the traceability.

Straight containers with a divisible handle:


Those containers in Polystyrene (PS) are used for samplings in place not approachable (e.g. Tanks, Cisterns, Rivers, Silos…) the handle allows sampling without cross contamination risks.

 

Once this step ended, it is possible after the container’s closure to cut the handle so make more room in terms of transportation to the quality control laboratory. Those containers are sterilized and are single packed.

Cutlery:


Spoons, forks and knifes in our product range allow making samplings in restaurants, butcher shops, fishmongers… etc. Veterinary services and food inspection are important consumers on that range.

 

We have also a multifunction cutlery which merges 3 functions: spoon, fork and knife. This product eases the sampling task by merging the 3 tools essentials to samplings. Cutleries are single packed.

Storage

Square bottle wide neck from 150 to 2.5 L


Those bottles stand for storage liquids, solids and powders. The polyethylene is a translucent material which permits visualizing rapidly the content of the bottle, it is a key point: this material has an excellent shock resistance.

 

Moreover with the graduations, measure the quantity product stay in the bottle is easier. The 2.5 L bottle has a mould handle which guaranties a good hand control during the use.

 

Finally according to the use of those bottles, they have good waterproofness.

Conical container screw cap 125 ml


This container is an intermediate storage place for samplings. Indeed the sample could be placed in cultivation in that type of container before being analyzed. Its raw material: the polypropylene is very resistant. Its shape confers it a waterproof tightness which is ideal for liquid samplings.

 

It is also easy to measure the quantity taken because it is graduated every 10 ml. In order to improve the traceability a writing area is available on the container avoiding the use of a label.

 

The screw cap is suitable perfectly for that container and it screws easily. The container’s content stay visible thanks to the transparence of the raw material used.

Inoculation

Inoculating loops and spreaders


Inoculating loops


Inoculating loops from our product range are color coded in order to find them rapidly during laboratory operations. Inoculating loops help to sample colonies in different mediums. Inoculating loops get a base entirely rounded with a soft edge without imperfections. All these cautions don’t damage the agar.

Liquid Transfer

Serological pipettes


Graduated pipettes measure small sampling solution volumes (from 1ml to 50 ml). Generally that type of pipette is used with a propipette which aspirates the liquid and as a result it comes in the pipette.

 

Each pipette ended with a colour coded buffer there are different according to the volumetry taken. Thanks to this technique, the user can look out easily during his experiences.

Pasteur’s Pipettes


Those pipettes are unbreakable thanks to the one-piece moulding. They are used in chemistry and in biology for research. In chemistry it is not compulsory that the pipette is sterile on the contrary in biology it is fundamental.

 

They can be used to sample small volumes for analysis (refractive index, column chromatography to deposit the eluting blend) pipettes are manufactured in polyethylene because that material is inert towards many chemical compounded.

Conical tubes with screw cap


The centrifugation uses often conical tubes. Indeed it’s easier to separate the precipitate and the supernatant in that type of tube during centrifugation. Moreover thanks to this slight conical shape those tubes ease decanting of solutions to analyze.

Grinding / Homogenization

Blender bag without filter


Blender bags are used to sample, mix solid samples which will be subject to microbiological analysis. Bags are resistant to long lasting working up.

 

This product is ideal to get a homogeneous airborne which ease taking a sample of microbiological airborne with a pipette.

 

Indeed this product prevents from blocking pipettes and support freezing until -80°C.

Blender bag


Method: the sample is deposit in a filter bag. Then it is placed in a blade bender.

 

The sample is crushed and mixed homogenously thanks to a repeated blade movement. The substrate is taken thank to the filter no fragments are present so the microbial analysis become easier.

Blender bag with side filter (140-170 µm)


Those bags are used to take a sample directly with a pipette the diluents contained in the bag without decanting the sample before.

Blender bag with full filter (140-170 µm)


Those bags have a specific filter very thin which separate the entire bag surface. This is increases the filtration surface and separates with efficiency big particles.

Clip for bags


Those clips close in a sealed manner bags and maintain them on the support. This product can be use several times because it is never in direct link with the sampling.

Incubation & Disposal

Petri dish diameter 90 mm


Our standard Petri plate range have 2 categories one having a 14.2 mm height which fit to the Mediterranean market.

 

On the other hand Petri dishes which have a 16.2 mm height correspond to the needs of the Northern European laboratories market. Standards Petri plates are used for micro-organism cultures.

Petri dish diameter 140 mm


This Petri plate with a specific size serves making antibiogram. This technique was conceived in order to test the sensitiveness of a bacteriological stem towards several antibiotics.

 

Several antibiotics are present in the Petri dish with the bacteria culture then an observation of the development is realized. Several methods exist to make the analysis. Indeed it is possible to deposit patches containing antibiotics in the Petri plate and put in touch with bacteria.

 

Another technique consists to dig a hole in the agar and deposit directly antibiotics inside. Three interpretations could be made according to the circle diameter which surrounds the antibiotic’s disk: sensitive bacteria, intermediate or resistant.

 

The Petri dish diameter 140 mm is useful for comparatives analysis because all bacteria are evolving in the same culture medium and thanks to its wide area, tests places are correctly distinct avoiding by the way cross contamination with the bordering medium so results are more convincing.
