PerkinElmer, Inc., a global leader committed to innovating for a healthier world, has launched the PerkinElmer Solus Listeria monocytogenes ELISA Assay.
This new offering will help high throughput food processors and contract labs focus on L. mono testing for food and environmental surface samples.
In sync with leading industry standards, the new solution is being introduced with Performance Tested Method SM (PTM) certification from AOAC® INTERNATIONAL (Association of Official Analytical Collaboration).
Though Listeria makes fewer people sick than other foodborne pathogens, the presence of the bacteria is more pervasive and Listeriosis carries a 20 – 30%* mortality rate if contracted by pregnant women, those over 65, or people with compromised immune systems.
The PerkinElmer Solus L. mono assay detects this harmful bacteria with accuracy, specificity and convenience, especially for geographic regions whose regulations require separate reporting for L. mono.
The new Solus L. mono assay, joins PerkinElmer’s foodborne pathogen portfolio including the wider spectrum Solus One Listeria assay, Solus One Salmonella, and Solus E. coli O157 ELISA. These innovations are part of the company’s broader food safety and quality solutions for grain, dairy, meats, produce, edible oils, seafood, and cannabis.
