This paper presents a review of the tests currently used in a public food unit to assess the efficiency of surface hygiene.
Laboratory exams can apply classical or modern methods, depending on the equipment available.
Classical methods require more work and longer waiting times to achieve the results than modern ones that apply rapid sanitation tests.
The visual unit and the buffer method are applied to the unit under study. The results of the sanitation samples taken by the buffer method revealed the correct hygiene of the surfaces in the canteen.
