A new test for detecting foodborne Salmonellawith the DuPont BAX system has been certified as Performance Tested method #081201 by the AOAC Research Institute. This assay uses polymerase chain reaction technology with real-time detection to deliver accurate results quickly.
“We’re very pleased to add this certification to our BAX System line of advanced food diagnostics,” said Doris Engesser-Sudlow, global diagnostics leader, DuPont Nutrition & Health. “Food companies that require certified testing methods can now use this Salmonella assay to help release products faster, saving inventory costs and extending shelf life.”
Validation of this BAX System assay found it to be an effective method for detecting Salmonellain cream cheese and other foods, and on stainless steel surfaces.
