Thermo Fisher Scientific has announced availability of a testing method that it has developed to help food producers detect deadly Salmonella contamination in their products.
The Salmonella Rapid Culture Method delivers highly accurate results in less than 48 hours, compared to up to 4 days for other methods, says the company. The Association of Analytical Communities (AOAC) granted Performance Testing MethodsSM status to this new testing solution.
The Salmonella Rapid Culture Method employs two novel culture products in a simple 2-step procedure. The AOAC granted Performance Testing Methods status after trials demonstrated that the method delivered consistent, accurate results that can allow food companies to confirm their products are free from Salmonella.
