The Pathatrix™ 5 Pooling Salmonella
spp. Kit, when used with the Pathatrix™ Auto Instrument
, permits the concentration and isolation of Salmonella
spp. bacteria from pre-enriched food and environmental samples for downstream detection by PCR, immunoassay or culture. This kit format supports pooling of 5 enriched samples into a single test, which can reduce downstream testing costs by up to 80%.
When used with the Pathatrix™ Auto Instrument, the Pathatrix™ 5 Pooling Salmonella
• Helps save money – supports pooling protocols that save up to 80% on downstream detection costs
• Minimizes false positive and indeterminate rates – isolates specific bacteria from background flora and PCR inhibitors
• Reduces time-to-results – concentrates target organisms, so less enrichment time is required
Each kit includes one vial of antibody-coated beads and sufficient numbers of sterile, single-use plastic consumables for 50 pooled tests (250 individual, enriched samples).
