Thermo Scientific Extends Range of Rapid Tests for Salmonella

The Dupont™ Lateral Flow System™

The wide range of products available from Thermo Scientific Limited for the detection of Salmonella in foods has been extended to include the Dupont™ Lateral Flow System™ Salmonella Test Kit. This simple to use detection system is sensitive enough to detect one colony forming unit (cfu) of Salmonella in a 25g food sample with results in just 24 hours.

The Dupont™ Lateral Flow System™ Salmonella Test Kit requires no capital investment and minimal training, making it suitable for Salmonella screening in both large and small laboratories. The specifically designed primary enrichment medium, Dupont™ Lateral Flow System™ Salmonella Medium, facilitates the recovery of sub-lethally injured and healthy cells in only 5 hours. Samples are ready to be tested, following a standard secondary enrichment phase, in just 24 hours.

The easy-to-use lateral flow test strip is simply placed in a small aliquot of the enrichment broth, the sample migrates along the test strip and, within 10 minutes, the result can be read. A Control line demonstrates that the test has performed correctly whilst the appearance of a second test line indicates a positive result.

The Dupont™ Lateral Flow System™ Salmonella Test Kit is suitable for use with a wide range of food types, including raw meat and poultry, processed meats, dairy products, eggs and other fresh produce.

The Dupont™ Lateral Flow System™ range includes products for the detection of Listeria and E. coli O157 and complements the DuPont Qualicon BAX® System available though Thermo Scientific for pathogens and Yeasts & Moulds. In addition, Thermo Scientific offers the food industry a comprehensive selection of culture media and manual test kits for the identification of a wide range of food-borne pathogens and food spoilage micro-organisms.
