The Salmonella spp. FLUO Kit is intended for the detection of all Salmonella species in food, primary production and environmental samples. The kit provides an easy-to-use master mix and contains reagent, enzyme and positive control for the successful amplification and detection of DNA from Salmonella spp. in multiplex Real-Time PCR using dual-labelled probes.
Salmonella spp. FLUO kit
Intoxications and infections caused by foodborne pathogens represent an increasing public health problem, with nearly a quarter of the population at higher risk for illness today. Several outbreaks following consumption of food contaminated by Salmonella spp. have been reported in recent years, indicating the importance of this problem in safeguarding public health. The Salmonella spp. FLUO kit uses DNA primers and fluorescent probe specific for the target organism. The internal control, present in the amplification mix, assesses the efficiency of amplification reaction by checking the presence of inhibitory factors and ensuring reliability of negative results. Results are obtained within a few hours following an enrichment step and subsequent DNA extraction, assuring 100% specificity and 1 CFU after enrichment sensitivity.
