Surface sample processing made easy

Surface sample processing made easy

It is important to sample surfaces of processing areas, equipment, and processing aids (such as compressed air, brine solutions, drain water) because foods can be contaminated during processing by pathogenic bacteria that persist in the manufacturing environment, e.g., various species of Listeria and Salmonella. Our wide array of pathogen detection products is designed to provide you with easy surface sample processing solutions that detect and enumerate these pathogens, and ultimately enable you to implement corrective actions to prevent bacterial contamination of processed foods. 

Featured bacterial food and environmental monitoring products

Monitor and control your manufacturing environment. Verify the effectiveness of your cleaning procedures and reduce the risk of contaminating finished products with ready-to-use contact and settling plates for detection and enumeration of bacteria.

Go molecular! We offer a range of validated real-time PCR workflows for the detection of Listeria, Salmonella and other targets in a variety of matrices including environmental surface samples. 

Detect Listeria in environmental samples with a rapid, simple molecular workflow

Confidently increase your Listeria testing throughput with a streamlined workflow and 96-well PCR technology. Review study data verifying that the performance of Thermo Scientific™ SureTect™ Listeria PCR assays is comparable to the ISO reference method in food and environmental samples.
