Applied Markets Watch: Thermo Fisher SureTect Salmonella

Premium

Thermo Fisher Scientific said this week that its SureTect Salmonella Species Assay has been granted Performance Tested Method status by the AOAC Research Institute.

The SureTect Salmonella species PCR Assay has proven to be comparable to the reference method ISO 6579:2002, "Microbiology of food and animal feeding stuffs: Horizontal method for the detection of Salmonella species."

The SureTect system was developed to detect microorganisms quickly and accurately in a broad range of foods and associated samples. The system features pre-filled lysis tubes and tableted PCR reagents to minimize the number of pipetting steps and hands-on time; an optimized single enrichment step and straightforward sample lysis in less than 20 minutes; and common PCR protocols for efficient processing of multiple assays in the same run, Thermo Fisher said.
