Fast & Flexible Listeria Detection Kits: Multiplex or Species-Based

In light of recent food borne illness outbreaks involving Listeria monocytogenes discovered in frozen vegetables, the already present demand for fast and reliable Listeria detection methods has increased. Eurofins GeneScan Technologies’ offers the complete solution for Listeria detection in food products and a broad range of environmental samples i.e. such as swabs, sponges, dusts and process waters taken from food processing plants. All our Listeria detection kits are certified by AFNOR Certification and by the AOAC Research Institute under the Performance Tested MethodsSM Program and offer you a flexible variety of testing solutions, which, besides environmental samples, can be applied to i.e. meat, dairy, vegetable, fruit, fish and seafood products.
