Solus from PerkinElmer Pathogen Detection System Can Help Keep Thanksgiving Safe

Thanksgiving is a time to gather the family together and celebrate the bounty of the harvest, often with a large turkey dinner with all the trimmings. But did you know that the Solus from PerkinElmer Pathogen Detection System can be used to test the components of a roast dinner to ensure they are safe?


Often associated with pathogens such as Salmonella, turkey can potentially be a source of food poisoning at Thanksgiving. Solus Salmonella ELISA can be used to test for the presence of Salmonella in poultry with results available in as little as 2 days.


Fresh and frozen vegetables can harbour bugs such as Listeria. If these are served without being properly cooked, they can lead to food poisoning and not very happy holidays. Solus Listeria ELISA is a 2-day test that can be used to test vegetables and help to keep the food on our plates safe.


Whether it’s a delicious glass of fresh milk or a warming hot chocolate, you want to know that your milk is safe to drink. This is especially important if the milk is raw and unpasteurised. Solus E. coli O157 ELISA can be used with raw milk samples to show if they are clear of E. coli O157 in under 24 hours. 

Herbs and Spices

Certain dishes just wouldn’t be the same without a touch of spice. Perhaps you enjoy a bit of smoky paprika-bacon roasted turkey, a sweet cinnamon dessert or maybe you enjoy your Thanksgiving dinner smothered in Ranch seasoning! Whichever herbs and spices you enjoy in your food, Solus One Salmonella can be used to test these often difficult-to-test samples and provide results in a single day!

Solus from PerkinElmer offers options

With specifically designed immunoassay kits, dedicated selective enrichment media, and automated liquid handling, the Solus from PerkinElmer Pathogen Detection System can offer solutions for testing a variety of matrices.

All Solus from PerkinElmer immunoassay kits are certified to ISO16140 by AFNOR, AOAC, or both, and cover a variety of food and environmental matrices.

Solus from PerkinElmer offers rapid results

Solus from PerkinElmer offer the Solus One™ range, a collection of assays that provide rapid results for environmental and food pathogen testing. Solus One assays provide negative and presumptive positive results in one day using only one enrichment step.

Solus from PerkinElmer offers options to fit into any lab

With kits available in two sizes, 96 or 480 tests per kit, and protocols that can easily be run manually for smaller facilities or efficiently automated for high-throughput requirements, the Solus from PerkinElmer Pathogen Detection System offers the ideal system for labs of all sizes.

Solus from PerkinElmer Pathogen Detection System offers efficient use of resources  

To truly benefit from the power of the Solus from PerkinElmer Pathogen Detection System, we recommend automating our assays using the Dynex DS2. This automated ELISA processing unit can manipulate 2 x 96-well plates simultaneously to provide a total of 192 results in approximately 3 hours after sample enrichment. And the best bit… 2 of those 3 hours can be spent elsewhere in the lab, preparing another batch of samples, analysing plates or catching up on paperwork.

Save Time with Solus


The simple Solus from PerkinElmer protocols come pre-loaded on to the DS2 and walk the user through each step of the set-up process, creating a smooth and extremely easy-to-use system. 

Solus from PerkinElmer offers flexibility

With its high-throughput and walk-away capabilities, the DS2 offers flexibility for processing fluctuating sample numbers. One analyst can either run the assay manually for just a few samples or comfortably run up to 3 DS2 units, allowing up to 558 samples + controls to be initiated every 3 hours.

Solus from PerkinElmer offers security

The DS2 unit incorporates an on-board barcode scanning system that allows for excellent sample traceability so your client can be assured of receiving the correct result for each test sample.

Solus from PerkinElmer offers space

Due to the compact format of our kits and the small footprint of the DS2, the Solus from PerkinElmer Pathogen Detection System could save significant space in fridges, incubators, media prep rooms, benchtops, and waste disposal.
