N-Light™ Salmonella Risk: A New Horizon in Food Safety Monitoring

N-Light™ Salmonella Risk: A New Horizon in Food Safety Monitoring

In the intricate microbiological milieu of food production, bacteria like Enterobacteriaceae and Salmonella spp. often become pivotal topics of food safety dialogues. The low incidence of Salmonella spp. in factory environs observed in merely 2 to 8 out of every 1000 routine samples, and the prevalence of total Enterobacteriaceae (TEB) is markedly higher.

The lack of definitive data associating TEB counts with Salmonella in environmental samples has long posed a challenge for researchers1. The EU Scientific Panel2 further underscored this data gap, affirming the impossibility of drawing a direct linkage between Enterobacteriaceae and Salmonella spp.

Bridging the Knowledge Gap: Introducing N-Light™ Salmonella Risk

The introduction of N-Light™ Salmonella Risk marks a significant stride towards demystifying the microbial dynamics in food production environments. This innovative test doesn't just detect Salmonella spp.; it broadens the scope to include a select group of related bacteria like Citrobacter, Klebsiella, and Enterobacter, which share specific metabolic and genetic markers with Salmonella spp. It's a fresh perspective, offering a more holistic view of the microbial landscape food producers navigate daily.


Not Just Detection, But a Risk Indicator

A positive outcome on the Salmonella Risk test doesn't directly mean detecting Salmonella spp. Instead, on top of detecting Salmonella spp., it also targets a small selection of closely related bacteria (such as Citrobacter, Klebsiella, and Enterobacter) that share specific metabolic and genetic markers. N-Light™ Salmonella Risk assists in timely interventions and preventive actions to ensure food production safety.


Monitoring the environment around food production is crucial to avoid pathogen contamination. NEMIS novel N-Light™ Salmonella Risk test is the first reliable method that enables lab-free testing and puts you as a food producer in control of your own quality management process.

Empowering Producers With On-Site Testing
With the N-Light™ Salmonella Risk test by NEMIS, lab-free testing becomes a reality, placing the reins of quality management directly in the hands of food producers. It's about fostering a proactive monitoring and control culture, where insights gained on-site drive swift, informed actions. N-Light™ Salmonella Risk is not just a test; it’s a robust companion in the journey towards enhanced food safety and quality control.
