Thermo Fisher Scientific RapidFinder Salmonella Multiplex System

Thermo Fisher Scientific has launched its RapidFinder Salmonella Multiplex PCR Detection Workflow for simultaneous and multiplexed detection of Salmonella typhimurum and Salmonella enteriditis. The real-time PCR workflow features easy sample preparation and results in as few as 16 hours from raw and cooked poultry and pork, in addition to production environment samples. Thermo's workflow offers simple sample enrichment and PCR preparation protocols, as well as TaqMan-based PCR probe technology for improved sensitivity, specificity, and reliability. The workflow runs on the Applied Biosystems Food Safety 7500 Fast System and Food Safety QuantStudio 5 System. In addition, the workflow has received AOAC-RI PTM certificaton as part of an extensive validation progrma to address salmonella testing needs at all stages of the poultry and pork production process.
