USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service Chooses 3M™ Molecular Detection System

The U.S. Department of Agriculture Food Safety and Inspection Service (USDA FSIS) awarded 3M™ Molecular Detection System the primary method to be used by USDA FSIS for the detection of Salmonella, Listeria monocytogenes and E. coli O157 (including H7). These are the 3 most common pathogens requiring testing for food safety in meat, poultry, and egg-related products. The 3M system was chosen after a rigorous performance evaluation against other commercially available methods. The 3M Molecular Detection System combines novel technologies – isothermal DNA amplification and bioluminescence detection – resulting in a fast, accurate, easy-to-use application that overcomes some limitations of PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) pathogen testing methods. It simultaneously accommodates individual, pathogen-specific assays, enabling users in meat, poultry and other food and beverage categories to run up to 96 different tests concurrently for a range of organisms and across various food and environmental samples. The 3M™ Molecular Detection Assays have been validated by leading scientific validation organizations throughout the world (AOAC® INTERNATIONAL, AFNOR, MicroVal) for a comprehensive variety of sample types. @ https://www-yahoo-com.cdn.ampproject.org/c/s/www.yahoo.com/amphtml/finance/news/usda-food-safety-inspection-chooses-214500919.html" rel="nofollow noopener noreferrer" target="_blank">https://www-yahoo-com.cdn.ampproject.org/c/s/www.yahoo.com/amphtml/finance/news/usda-food-safety-inspection-chooses-214500919.html
USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service Chooses 3M for E. coli, Salmonella and Listeria Testing

3M Food Safety has been awarded a contract from the U.S. Department of Agriculture Food Safety and Inspection Service (USDA FSIS) for pathogen detection instruments and kits. The award makes the 3M™ Molecular Detection System the primary method to be used by USDA FSIS for the detection of Salmonella
