Neogen® offers an innovative molecular detection test for Listeria monocytogenes in food and environmental samples, as well as dehydrated culture media for traditional detection methods.
Listeria spp. can be found throughout the environment, and therefore, there is a potential for Listeria contamination in a wide variety of foods. Meat, eggs, chicken, seafood, dairy products and vegetables have all been identified as sources of Listeria outbreaks. The genus Listeria is comprised of seventeen species, with Listeria monocytogenes being the most significant to cause human illness.
Neogen’s ANSR® for Listeria monocytogenes utilises patent-pending, unique amplification reaction technology for in vitro DNA amplification. ANSR’s amplification methodology exponentially amplifies the DNA of any target bacteria present in enriched food or environmental samples to detectable levels in only minutes, following enrichment.
Neogen’s GeneQuence® for Listeria monocytogenes test kits are versatile, as they can be run manually, semi-automated, or fully automated. The DSX Platform is a fully automated four-plate processing system capable of simultaneously performing extremely specific assays for Salmonella, Listeria, and L. monocytogenes.
