The Pathatrix™ Auto System has obtained AFNOR™ certification for the ‘Pathatrix™ Auto Salmonella spp.’ Validation data demonstrates equivalence to the reference method ISO 6579 (2002).
Meat products: including raw beef, ready-to-eat and ready-to-reheat meat products
Dairy products: including heat-treated milk and UHT, canned or pasteurized dairy products
Salmonella detection workflows:
Two protocols have been validated:
Both protocols allow the screening of the negative samples typically within 2 days, while 3 days are required for the positive samples; compared to 4 days for culture negatives following ISO.
The Pathatrix Auto Instrument is a recirculation immunomagnetic separation system. Using magnetic beads coated with antibodies, the Pathatrix Auto Instrument quickly concentrates the target organisms such as Salmonella from the enriched samples, and the on-line wash step removes non-target organisms and any PCR inhibitors. This helps reduce the time to results and enables increased pathogen testing at lower costs.
