The Multipathogen FLUO Kit is intended for the simultaneous detection of Salmonella spp., L. monocytogenes and E. coli O157 DNA by multiplex Real-time PCR. Results are obtained within few hours following an enrichment step and subsequent DNA extraction, representing a powerful alternative to reference methods.
Multipathogen FLUO Kit (for Salmonella spp., L. monocytogenes and E.Coli O157)
Microbial food safety is an increasing global public health concern. Each year, as many as 600 million, almost one in 10 people in the world, fall ill after consuming some sort of contaminated food. Several outbreaks of food-borne illnesses caused by Shiga toxin-producing E. coli, Salmonella spp. and L. monocytogenes have been reported in recent years, highlighting the importance of this problem in safeguarding public health. The Multipathogen FLUO Kit uses DNA primers and fluorescent probes specific for the target organisms. The internal amplification control, presents in the amplification mix, assesses the efficiency of each amplification reaction by checking the presence of inhibitory factors and ensuring reliability of negative results.
