Expanding on the innovative 3M™ Molecular Detection System now relied on by food processors, laboratories, universities and government agencies in over 45 countries for reliable pathogen testing results, 3M Food Safety announces a next generation of 3M™ Molecular Detection Assays: the 3M™ Molecular Detection Assay 2 – Listeria and 3M™ Molecular Detection Assay 2 – Listeria monocytogenes. Based on the same combination of advanced technologies used in all 3M Molecular Detection Assays--isothermal DNA amplification and bioluminescence detection--these next-generation assays use new chemistry to deliver accurate results with shorter enrichment times and improved productivity.

Applicable to environmental samples and a broad range of food types (dairy products, ready-to-eat and raw meats, fish and seafood, fruits and vegetables) and using a standard enrichment medium, the next generation assays for Listeria and Listeria monocytogenes provide a faster time-to-result after as little as 24 hours of enrichment. These assays use a streamlined workflow that is 30 percent faster than first generation assays--enabled by new lysis chemistry that utilizes proprietary 3M nanotechnology and features a unique color-change indicator for increased control during assay processing. This results in fewer steps for today’s busy pathogen testing laboratories looking to enhance productivity, without compromising accuracy.
