Microbiology products for food safety testing
With over 150 years of serving the microbiology community, we bring you full access to technical and scientific expertise, providing superior innovation that can only come from the world leader in serving science, Thermo Fisher Scientific.
Our product range includes comprehensive solutions for sample dilution, enrichment, isolation, enumeration, detection, identification and confirmation for microbial pathogens, indicators, probiotic and spoilage organisms.
SureTect real-time PCR system for rapid, accurate food pathogen testing
Built on proven PCR technology, the SureTect™ system is designed to quickly and accurately detect microorganisms in a broad range of foods and associated samples. This unique solution combines speed and performance in an easy-to-use, cost-effective platform – giving you results you can be sure about.
Ready-to-use culture media for food testing
Spend your time analysing samples, not preparing formats, with ready-to-use Thermo Scientific Oxoid and Remel culture media. Take advantage of reference method-compliant formulations and chromogenic media in a number of formats, including Thermo Scientific Dry-Bags, Oxoid Ready-Bags, plates, bottles and tubes.
Precis methods for Salmonella and Listeria testing
Backed by over 150 years of media expertise, the ISO 16140-validated Thermo Scientific Salmonella and Listeria Precis™ methods combine defined media with chromogen and Inhibigen™ technology for ‘one broth-one plate’ methods that are quick and easy to set up and read versus traditional techniques.
Our Precis methods are validated according to ISO 16140 by MicroVal for all food and associated environmental samples, and were recently added to the Marks & Spencer’s methods manual.
Mastitis qPCR assays
We offer a range of assays designed for accurate same-day identification of mastitis-causing microorganisms from bovine milk using quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction (qPCR). Thermo Scientific PathoProof™ kits include all the necessary reagents for bacterial DNA extraction and qPCR. The tests have been optimised for use with even the most challenging bulk-tank and quarter milk samples.
PathoProof mastitis PCR assays are revolutionary tests for identifying all main mastitis-causing bacteria from bovine milk samples, without any bacterial culturing steps. Results are available within four hours, versus conventional culturing methods which can take from 48 hours to up to seven days for Mycoplasma bovis.
