Thermo Scientific SureTect PCR Assays

Thermo Fisher Scientific has released five new Thermo Scientific SureTect PCR assays and related software for food testing. The tests, which are designed to run on the Applied Biosystems QuantStudio 5 Food Safety PCR system, are for the detection and identification of Campylobacter jejuni, C. coli, and C. lari; E. coli O157:H7 and STEC screening; STEC identification; Staphylococcus aureus detection; and Vibrio cholerae, V. parahaemolyticus, and V. vulnificus detection and identification. They typically provide negative and presumptive-positive results within less than 24 hours, with some protocols taking as little as nine hours.
