For easy, rapid and specific detection of Salmonella spp. and Campylobacter for the poultry industry
Campylobacter is a pathogen that can cause an illness called campylobacteriosis, the leading cause of gastroenteritis in the world. The highest occurrence is detected in chicken meat (37.5%) and turkey meat (28.2%).
FoodNet Annual Reports show that Salmonella spp. is the second highest cause for foodborne diseases and one of the major causes for FDA & FSIS recalls. Therefore, most countries have implemented strict criteria for this pathogen monitoring.
In response to industry concerns, Pall GeneDisc Technologies provides in one unique test an ideal solution for food processors in need of a reliable control of Salmonella spp. and Campylobacter associated risks.
GeneDisc System Benefits
Rapid—While culture methods require up to 5 days to obtain results, Pall’s GeneDisc method reduces time to results by 50% for detection and 90% for quantification.
Flexible—With one product, qualitative and quantitative tests can be carried out to guarantee either absence of Campylobacter or a threshold at 1,000 CFU/g.
Easy to use—Matrix specific protocols are designed for routine use and validated from sample to result.
Hight throughput capability—Simultaneous DNA extractions from one single sample to 96 samples in less than one hour.
Modular—System modularity fits your throughput needs: from 3 to up to 96 samples can be simultaneously analyzed.
A Solution Designed for Food Industries
In line with MLG 4.10 and MLG 41.04 AOAC certified methods.
In line with ISO 10272 and ISO 6579 certified methods.
Test multiple pathogens simultaneously—Analysis of Salmonella with Campylobacter is available and does not require any additional hands-on time.
Evaluate product rapidly—Dedicated application enables industries to guarantee the absence in 25 g of raw or processed meat, 30 mL of poultry carcass rinse, or environmental samples with a time to result in as little as 22 hours.
Campylobacter Identity Card
|Bacteria||Gram –, S-shaped motile proteobacteria|
|Food Vehicle||Large variety of food, especially poultry products like chicken or turkey meat and eggs.|
|Number of Cases||EFSA reported 246,000 human cases annually detected and 9,000,000 human cases estimated. CDC estimated 1.5 million illnesses each year in the United States.
WHO reported 96 million cases. The risk of infection is highest in travelers to Africa and South America, especially to areas with poor restaurant hygiene and inadequate sanitation.
