3M Assay For Detection Of Foodborne Pathogen Approved By Health Canada

June 21, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
Canada’s public health agency has approved an advanced system for fast detection of the dangerous foodborne bacteria Listeria in a broad range of foods. The system, developed by the 3M Food Safety division, meets Health Canada’s requirements for detection of Listeria in environmental samples, dairy products, ready-to-eat and raw meats, fish and seafood, and fruits and vegetables. Using standard enrichment medium, the next generation assays for Listeria and Listeria monocytogenes provide a time-to-result after 24 hours of enrichment. The molecular detection assays are now included on Health Canada’s guide of official methods used to determine compliance with government standards and guidelines.
