HybriScan®: Easy Detection of Cronobacter


HybriScan®A rapid method based on rRNA detection screens for Cronobacter species from infant formula with common inexpensive equipment (microplate reader). One assay can be done within 2.5 hours and one detection plate contains up to 96 tests.

An easy, selective and rapid method for the identification and quantification of microorganisms. Easy sample preparation, no PCR and no expensive equipment is needed! Detects only living cells. The test principle is based on the sandwich hybridisation method. The BENEFITS of HybriScan® Kits relative to conventional methods:

  • Rapid, sensitive and reliable (without PCR)
  • Fast, saves up to 10 days compared to cultivation-based assays (test is finished within 2.5 h)
  • Discriminates between live and dead cells
  • High flexibility (group- or species-specific detection)
  • Detection of non-culturable organisms
  • Robust system not affected by the sample matrix
  • Quantitative results without cell counting
  • Uses standard laboratory equipment
  • Economical, high-throughput, 96-well microplate format
