Powered by unique technologies — Loop-Mediated Isothermal Amplification (LAMP) and Bioluminescence Detection — the 3M™ Molecular Detection System is a fast, accurate, easy-to-use and affordable solution. In comparison, Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) technology, commonly used in DNA-based pathogen detection, uses Internal Amplification Control because of its own limitations and susceptibility to inhibition from sample matrices, which can lead to false negative results.
Get more control over time to results, process, and productivity.
The 3M™ Molecular Detection Assay 2 platform makes molecular detection of food pathogens simpler and faster. Food manufacturers get never-before-available speed and ease in simultaneously identifying Salmonella, Listeria, Listeria monocytogenes, E. coli O157 (including H7), Campylobacter, and Cronobacter.
For these reasons, the 3M™ Molecular Detection Assay 2 earned the Edison Award in 2017.
This study compares salmonella pathogen detection methods between 3M™ Molecular Detection Assay 2 – Salmonella, DuPont™ BAX® Salmonella 2 PCR Assay, Bio-Rad iQ-Check® Salmonella II PCR Kit (Easy I Protocol), and bioMérieux VIDAS® UP Salmonella (SPT). Learn how the complexity of steps in these methods can lead to varied time to result and technician bench time.
Take a comprehensive look at 3M molecular technology compared to alternatives like PCR. With the combination of 3M™ Molecular Detection Assay 2 - Campylobacter and 3M™ Molecular Detection Assay 2 - Salmonella, you can monitor poultry for both pathogens simultaneously in one easy-to-use, accurate process.
Power up the system, launch the software and enter your data. Transfer enriched samples to the pre-filled lysis tubes.
Heat and cool the lysis tubes. Add the sample lysate to the reagent tubes.
Press start and load the instrument. Monitor real-time presumptive results as pathogen DNA is detected.
All the advantages of the 3M™ Molecular Detection System are now available with automation by Hamilton® foodInspect™ NIMBUS®, bringing productivity and flexibility to your process. Imagine what your lab could accomplish with this powerful partnership.
Relax knowing that it performs the same as a human operator.
Follow a single protocol for all 3M™ Molecular Detection Assays.
Allow personnel to take on additional value-added tasks.
The USDA FSIS Microbiology Laboratory Guidebook (MLG) methods for pathogen detection have been updated to reflect 2019 standards, including Loop-Mediated Isothermal Amplification (LAMP) technology.
