DuPont Nutrition & Health Releases New BAX® System Eight-Hour Listeria Test

BAX  Listeria Test

DuPont Nutrition & Health has released a new genetic-based test that allows food companies to detect Listeria on environmental surfaces in just eight hours. This new assay is the first commercial application of Reverse-Transcriptase PCR for bacterial testing in food and the latest addition to the award-winning suite of BAX® system products.

"This flexible test can give food companies clear, precise results at the end of a shift," said Kevin Huttman, president of DuPont Nutrition & Health. "With fast, accurate detection of Listeria, even at low concentrations, food processors get the information they need to take action sooner and release product faster."

DuPont Nutrition & Health provides innovative, science-based diagnostic products. The BAX® system offers advanced DNA-based detection of microbes in food, from raw ingredients to finished products. In alliance with Applied Biosystems, DuPont Nutrition & Health has developed the next-generation BAX® system Q7 with advanced capabilities for real-time PCR and species differentiation.

DuPont Nutrition & Health also markets the patented RiboPrinter® System, the world's only automated DNA fingerprinting instrument that rapidly pinpoints sources of bacteria in food and pharmaceuticals.
