GeneDisc Plates for Listeria Detection

Listeria monocytogenes is an opportunistic foodborne pathogen that can affect a wide range of food products and can cause severe infections with high mortality rate to the elderly, immunodepressed persons and pregnant women. Since L. monocytogenes has the ability to grow slowly at refrigerated temperatures, it is a major concern for food companies.

Two factors have also raised interest for Listeria spp. detection. Cases of listeriosis related to other Listeria spp. have been reported. Furthermore, evidence suggests the presence of other non-pathogenic Listeria spp. can be an early indication of L. monocytogenes contamination.

Pall GeneDisc Technologies provides solutions for food processors in need of a reliable control of L. monocytogenes and/or Listeria spp. risk.

GeneDisc System Benefits

Rapid — Accelerate your controls workflow and achieve fast releases of short shelf life products and testing of raw materials. While other methods such as immunoassays or culture methods (chromogenic media) require up to 3 days to get a result, Pall's GeneDisc method allows a detection of Listeria in as fast as 20 hours.

Easy to use — GeneDisc solutions are designed for routine use. Implementing PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) has never been this easy.

Modular — System modularity fits your throughput needs: up to 96 samples can be analyzed in a one hour PCR run.

A Solution Designed For Food Industries

In line with MLG 8, BAM 10, OMA 993.12 and ISO 11290 – NF VALIDATION and AOAC certified method.

Adaptive to testing needs – Simultaneous or individual testing solutions for L. monocytogenes and Listeria spp. are available with same hands-on time and enrichment.
