With the use of SureFast® Salmonella ONE Salmonella DNA can be easely extracted from enrichment cultures with rare material costs and little effort. Extracted DNA can be used directly for real-time PCR analysis. Within 2 hours the results are available.
Using this method guaranties fast analysis of raw materials, semi-finished products and final products and enables fast approvals to start trading.
How does it work?
Aliquots of enriched samples (buffered pepton water) will be taken and extracted with a specific lysisbuffer within 15 minutes. Inhibitory substances will be removed and DNA can be used directly for real-time PCR. The real-time PCR method is based on the salmonella detection and an inhibition control to avoid false negative results. The real-time PCR method is external validated by AOAC and Microval and can be used on all common cyclers.
