  • CytoGuard Stat-N can improve the product quality over the range of the shelf-life of the finished product.
  • CytoGuard Stat-N flavors should be incorporated into products taking the place of water in the formulation – improving shelf life by 30%. Typical usage is 1% - 2% of the product formulation.

Cytoguard® Stat-N - Usage 

  • CytoGuard Stat-N can be used in conjunction with CytoGuard® LA to further improve efficacy. In the above example, CytoGuard LA was used to reduce intital bacterial loads and CytoGuard Stat-N maintained lower counts throughout shelf-life.
Application for Surface Treatment
  • CytoGuard Stat-N can also be applied as a surface treatment. By targeting the primary location of bacterial growth, the preservative effect is maximized, while minimizing any secondary sensory impact.

Cytoguard® Stat-N - Application For Surface Treatment 

  • When using as a surface application, CytoGuard Stat-N can also be mixed directly with a bacterial agent such as CytoGuard LA.
