The 3M Molecular Detection System is based on an innovative combination of unique technologies involving isothermal DNA amplification and bioluminescence detection. The system was designed with 3M's customer testing needs in mind. It's a compact, simple and robust system that is low maintenance and offers easy implementation, but at the same time doesn't compromise on accuracy and reliability.
At the event, 3M will showcase a series of poster presentations, some of which pertain to the 3M Molecular Detection System and its capabilities. In addition, Ken Davenport, Lean Six Sigma Black Belt for 3M Food Safety, will co-present at the conference speaking on “Translating HACCP to Lean, Six Sigma.”
