3M Food Safety announced this week an addition to its next generation 3M™ Molecular Detection Assays--the 3M Molecular Detection Assay 2 – Salmonella. This new test--enhanced with a proprietary 3M nanotechnology--provides customers with a streamlined workflow and simplifies their pathogen testing. All 3M Molecular Detection Assay 2 tests – Salmonella, Listeria, and Listeria monocytogenes – use a single assay protocol, enabling batch processing of samples and improving efficiency in the laboratory. Incorporation of a unique color-change indicator provides increased confidence during the process. Compared to first generation tests, assay processing time is 30 percent faster and instrument run time is only 1 hour. Combined with short enrichment times, as low as 10 hours for 25g or composited 325g raw meat samples, these features give customers flexibility in their testing and allow them to make critical decisions faster.

“We are excited to announce this next generation assay for the detection of Salmonella,” says John David, global marketing supervisor for 3M Food Safety. “The streamlined and simplified workflow, time savings, and reliable results provided by the system enables food processors and laboratories to operate with greater productivity and confidence.”
