Extended Matrix Validations for 3M’s Salmonella Molecular Test
3M Food Safety has announced that the 3M™ Molecular Detection Assay 2 – Salmonella has earned matrix extensions from AFNOR Certification for its NF VALIDATION.
In February 2017, the test was first certified by AFNOR (Certificate reference number: 3M 01/16-11/16) for detection of Salmonella spp. in all human foods as well as in samples from the food processing environment, excluding primary production samples. The pathogen test’s validation now encompasses samples taken from primary production as well as from animal feed and pet food.
The Salmonella pathogen test kit is part of the 3M™ Molecular Detection System platform, award-winning technology that combines isothermal DNA amplification and bioluminescence detection to produce rapid, accurate results with fewer steps, reducing costs and technician time.
Enhanced with a proprietary 3M nanotechnology, the test gives processors a streamlined workflow that enables same-day or next-day pathogen test results and faster, more confident food safety decisions. Comparative research shows that the 3M Molecular Detection Assay 2 – Salmonella will process a batch of 96 samples 1.7 times faster than the closest competitive technology. Last year, the 3M Molecular Detection System became a primary method of the USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service for the detection of both Salmonella and Listeria.For more information on the next generation 3M Molecular Detection Assay solutions, visit 3M.com/MolecularDetection.
