SwabSURE ListeriaP Easy to Use Colour-change Testing System
Launched in May 2011, Technical Service Consultants SwabSURE ListeriaP is an innovative, Campden BRI validated, ISO 18593 compliant, easy to use colour-change testing system for presumptive detection of pathogenic Listeria from food contact and environmental surfaces.
ListeriaP permits easy differentiation between pathogenic Listeria monocytogenes and Listeria ivanovii from other background microorganisms including Bacillus spp., Enterococcus spp., Micrococcus spp., Klebsiella spp., and other Listeria species like Listeria innocua, simplifying the testing process involved in meeting safety and regulatory requirements such as HACCP.
The pre-moistened foam swab optimises sample collection whilst the unique TSC neutralising buffer inactivates any disinfectant residues including QAC's, phenols, peroxides and most sansitisers, enhancing cell recovery ensuring accurate and confident results every time. After the simple, safe and secure swab transfer into the ListeriaP medium using the convenient breakpoint, the structure of foam swab maximises sample release ensuring optimal recovery of target cells.
The selective media with its patented chromogenic substrate reliably detects Listeria monocytogenes down to 1 CFU by changing colour from straw to turquoise within 24 to 48 hours. This visual screen reduces unnecessary and costly subculturing and further identification needs, eliminating false positives, a common problem with other traditional methods. ListeriaP is simple, quick and ready to use, with the kit containing everything to perform 81 tests.For further details, validation results or to request a free sample pack of 5 tests please visit www.tscswabs.co.uk/listeria or telephone +44 1706 620 600.
