1. Microscans ($22) - Samples are examined microscopically and observed for yeast, bacteria, mold or other small particles.

2. Bottle Sterility ($22) – What’s growing in your bottled wine? Hopefully nothing. 300 mL of a bottled wine can be cultured to detect yeast, bacteria or mold – thus ensuring that your bottling has been clean.

3. Cultures ($22)

a. WL - Wallerstein Nutrient Broth – for growing yeast, bacteria and mold

b. WLD – Wallerstein Differential Broth – for growing bacteria
