Salmonella and Listeria monocytogenes are ongoing threats to food production, processing facilities and consumers around the globe. 3M is dedicated to providing solutions to detect the foodborne pathogens, to protect consumers and businesses from threats like these with innovative and reliable technologies driven by science.
Now, the USDA’s Food Safety & Inspective Service (FSIS) has further validated the 3M solution by selecting the 3M™ Molecular Detection System as the primary method of detection of Salmonella and Listeria monocytogenes, the two highly pathogenic organisms.
It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3
The 3M™ Molecular Detection System was selected the primary detection method of the USDA FSIS for detection of Salmonella and Listeria monocytogenes after rigorous performance evaluations against other methods. The method helps you make critical decisions – faster. It follows a sampling>enrich>test>results process, giving next day results, with presumptive positives identified in as little as 15 minutes.
The 3M Molecular Detection System combines novel technologies, including isothermal DNA amplification and bioluminescence detection. The single-assay protocol boosts productivity and reduces errors, and its streamlined workflow cuts technician time by 30%. Plus, the instrument’s compact design fits easily on any laboratory bench.
Align your method
The 3M Molecular Detection System helps you ensure you’re aligning your testing methods to the updated FSIS pathogen reduction performance standards for beef, pork and poultry.
