Environmental Swabbing Assay That Simultaneously Detects Both Salmonella and Listeria in One Test
bioMérieux have announced the availability of GENE-UP® ENVIROPRO™, the only assay of its kind to simultaneously detect both Salmonella and Listeria from environmental swabbing, including PCR confirmation. The solution provides cost savings, laboratory waste reduction, and a streamlined workflow to empower rapid and effective quality decisions.
Salmonella and Listeria workflows and assays available on the market consist of separate enrichments. With GENE-UP® ENVIROPRO™, users can test environments for both Salmonella and Listeria through one swab, one enrichment and one sample prep, improving overall sampling efficiencies and sustainability.
The GENE-UP® ENVIROPRO™ assay is the result of bioMérieux's xPRO program – an innovation engine within bioMérieux partnering directly with industry leaders to rapidly develop, validate, and commercialize cutting-edge molecular assay to respond to emerging needs and provide solutions for new markets enhancing their overall quality programs.
GENE-UP® ENVIROPRO™ is designed to empower rapid and effective quality decisions with a best-in-class workflow that eliminates cumbersome DNA purification steps and reduces hands-on time.
The solution is an AOAC Performance Tested Method and can be applied across food industry verticals with applications including but not limited to dairy, dry fruits, nuts, seeds, berries, nutraceuticals, and multi-component products (e.g., ready-to-eat meals).
GENE-UP® ENVIROPRO™ is now available for implementation. For more information, please visit www.biomerieux-industry.com.
