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 chicken products for both pathogens simultaneously in one easy-to-use, accurate process.
Read how you can use 3M™ Petrifilm™ Plates when testing with neutralizing Buffered Peptone Water (nBPW) during verification sampling. As more poultry processors use nBPW to align with USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) testing, information shows that 3M™ Petrifilm™ Plates provide the same results as traditional agar.
A robust environmental monitoring program is crucial considering the dangers inherent in the poultry industry. Join Dr. Martin Wiedmann of Cornell University for this 5-part environmental monitoring webinar series from 3M Food Safety.
Campylobacter is part of the natural gut microflora in chickens, turkeys, swine, cattle and sheep. It only takes 500 Campylobacter cells to cause infections in humans, making it an important pathogen test for food manufacturers.
Listeria monocytogenes, a Gram-positive bacterium, is often found in moist conditions, including soil, surface water and decaying vegetation. Listeria monocytogenes is the most infamous of the 17 known species in theListeriagenus.
Salmonella is a Gram-negative, rod-shaped bacterium that is one of several organisms in the Enterobacteriaceae family.Salmonella is the most commonly reported cause of foodborne illness today, making it one of the most important tests for food processors.
