BAX® System Real-Time PCR Assay for L. monocytogenes
Food processors and service labs who need a fast, accurate test for Listeria monocytogenes can now use the latest DuPont™ BAX® System assay from DuPont Nutrition & Health to help support food safety and quality standards. This next-generation test – which combines shorter, simpler sample preparation and faster real-time processing, without sacrificing accuracy or reliability – will be introduced at the International Association for Food Protection (IAFP) annual meeting in Indianapolis, Ind., August 3-6.
The DuPont™ BAX® System Real-Time PCR Assay for L. monocytogenes is a quick and reliable method for detecting L. monocytogenes in a variety of products and has been validated on frankfurters, cooked shrimp, spinach, queso fresco and environmental surfaces. Furthermore, the assay provides additional flexibility by allowing customers to test for L. monocytogenes, Listeria spp. and Salmonella in the same batch, with results for all organisms in a little over an hour.
In addition, this new assay completes the BAX® System portfolio of real-time PCR assays for the common U.S. pathogens, which allow for superior specificity, shorter processing time and faster results. With this offering, DuPont Nutrition & Health can provide a complete testing solution for Salmonella, E. coli O157:H7, non-O157 STEC, Genus Listeria, L. monocytogenes, Campylobacter and more on a single, easy to use platform.
DuPont Nutrition & Health introduces the BAX® System Real-Time PCR Assay for L. monocytogenes Booth 757 at IAFP Annual Meeting in Indianapolis, Ind., on August 3-6, 2014.
