Thermo Scientific SureTect PCR Assays for foodborne pathogen analysis

Monday, 09 March, 2020 | Supplied by: Thermo Fisher Scientific


Thermo Fisher Scientific has released five Thermo Scientific SureTect PCR Assays and enhanced software to test food and related samples for the following: Campylobacter jejuni, C. coli and C. lari detection and identification; E. coli O157:H7 and STEC screening; STEC identification; Staphylococcus aureus detection; Vibrio cholerae, V. parahaemolyticus and V. vulnificus detection and identification.

The PCR assay workflow includes enrichment media, ready-to-use PCR reagents and protocols, and instrumentation for sample preparation and PCR, as well as easy-to-use software for instant result interpretation. PCR-positive results can be quickly and easily confirmed using a single Thermo Scientific plate medium per target and simple immunological test. Negative and presumptive-positive results are typically available in less than 24 h, with some protocols taking as little as 9 h to complete.

Every assay is designed to run on the Applied Biosystems QuantStudio 5 Food Safety PCR System — an open, real-time PCR instrument suitable for use with all Thermo Scientific food safety and authenticity assays. The six-channel configuration of the system provides multiplexing capability that can now be used in a commercial test to simultaneous identification of up to six STEC targets with the SureTect STEC Identification Assay.

The assays offer complete, end-to-end workflows that provide manufacturers and laboratories with access to a comprehensive range of tests for every step of their food safety analysis, giving them the ability to quickly determine the presence or absence of foodborne pathogens.
