Applied Biosystems New Kits to Detect Salmonella and Listeria monocytogenes
Applied Biosystems have expanded their portfolio of food safety testing solutions with new kits and software to improve the detection of Salmonella in food. These new tools, which include MicroSEQ® Pathogen Detection kits, PrepSEQ™ sample preparation kits and data analysis software, were developed to enable government agencies and food companies to more effectively monitor the food supply for contamination to help ensure food safety.
These tools deliver the highest standard for next-generation food testing technology, which is being rapidly deployed to protect consumers from contaminated food, such as Salmonella-tainted peanut butter, which recently caused the largest food recall in U.S. history. The new tools from Applied Biosystems accelerate the identification of pathogens, delivering results within hours, compared to days using other technologies.
The MicroSEQ Salmonella spp. Detection Kit and MicroSEQ Listeria monocytogenes Detection Kit are enabled by a new innovation that combines fast real-time PCR-based molecular technology in a lyophilized - or dried - format that reduces the handling of samples.
These kits are part of a complete workflow that is optimized for use with the Applied Biosystems 7500 Fast Real-Time PCR System. This is a simple, three-step process that enriches the sample, prepares the DNA by removing inhibitors with either the PrepSEQ™ Nucleic Acid Extraction Kit or the PrepSEQ™ Rapid Spin Sample Preparation Kit and runs the test using RapidFinder™ Express software for improved data analysis.
