Listeria Test with No Enrichment
Listeria Right Now test system can detect all species of Listeria, including the pathogenic L. monocytogenes, in under 60 minutes through their ribosomal RNA (rRNA). The process starts with taking an environmental sample to capture any Listeria present. The entire swab sample is placed in a tube that contains a lysis buffer that breaks up any bacteria present, and releases its rRNA. If Listeria is in the sample, the test’s reagents will amplify thousands of copies of its rRNA—and make the Listeria easily detectable. The system has been validated by NSF International to detect low levels of Listeria in environmental samples. Neogen Corp., 800-234-5333, www.neogen.com.
