AFNOR Approves Cronobacter spp. Assay - Results in 18 Hours
The new simple to use Thermo Scientific SureTect™ Cronobacter Species Real-Time PCR Assay delivers PCR results in as few as 18 hours following sample receipt. This enables infant formula manufacturers and their suppliers to process and evaluate samples quickly. The assay has been granted NF VALIDATION certification by AFNOR Certification, and can form part of a test workflow that helps customers comply with the Commission Regulation (EC) No 2073/2005 on microbiological criteria for foodstuffs.
Thermo Fisher developed the SureTect System to detect microbial pathogens quickly and accurately in a broad range of foods and associated samples, offering food producers and contract laboratories the following:
- Quick, actionable results, with a fast, optimized single enrichment step and automatic result interpretation.
- Efficient operations, with streamlined lysis and PCR protocols that allow for the detection of multiple targets in the same run.
- Throughput flexibility, with continuous or batch processing possible for up to 120 samples in 80 minutes.
- Convenience, with pre-filled lysis tubes and tableted PCR reagents to minimize the number of pipetting steps and hands-on time.
Other assays available for the Suretect system include: Listeria monocytogenes, Listeria Species, Salmonella Species, E.coli O157:H7
