Pall Presentation on qPCR at Rapid Methods Europe 2010

qPCR GeneDisc
Make sure to attend the forthcoming 'Rapid Methods Europe 2010' event in Noordwijk, The Netherlands, where Bertrand Coissac will give a presentation on how pathogenic E. coli O157:H7 and Listeria identification assays demonstrate the ability of Pall's GeneDisc® qPCR technology to detect multiple target organisms in food production.
The presentation will take place during Parallel Session #5 on Tuesday 26th January, and following this, Bertrand will also discuss the pathogenic E. coli O157:H7 assay (characterized by the presence of the stx and eae genes, as described in the EFSA publication) together with a demonstration of Listeria identification performed in minutes.


Several industries, including food safety, have already adopted qPCR as a rapid method for detecting microorganisms. Microbiological quality control testing in the biopharmaceutical industry includes several applications well-suited to qPCR but these requirements have not been served well by previous qPCR platforms. Pall's GeneDisc technology is changing this by providing a unique, highly simplified and controlled method well suited to these requirements. Bertrand will also explain how the technology offers:

  • Same-day data, minimizing the need to operate manufacturing processes at risk

  • Organism-specific quantification of microbial contaminants, ensuring accurate and precise results

  • Highly reproducible data based on a novel 'consumable and instrument' design

  • Minimal operator-attended steps, thus minimizing errors and maximizing ease of use and consistency

Also, take time to visit Pall's exhibition booth where the GeneDisc® technology will be on display, with Pall experts also available to assist you with questions and queries related to qPCR.
