Microgen Bioproducts has released the Path-Chek Hygiene Pathogen System for the detection of important food-borne pathogens ( Listeria spp, Coliforms and Salmonella spp.) from work surfaces and manufacturing equipment in food handling and manufacturing environments.
The pathogen detection system consists of two units; a pre-moistened swab, which has the benefit of neutralising the effects of cleaning solutions and improving bacteria recovery from dry surfaces; and a highly specific and sensitive detection media which gives results by providing a clear visual colour change in 18-24 hours for Coliforms and Salmonella spp. and 24-48 hours for Listeria spp ., if specific organisms are present on surfaces.
The pathogen detection system meets the requirements of ISO: 18395:2004(E) and is compliant with the requirements of USDA, FSIS and BAM but unlike similar methods does not require a pre-enrichment step. The use of the Path-Chek Hygiene Pathogen Swab provides a rapid, easy-to-use and cost-effective method of pathogen and hygiene monitoring, which should be part of any comprehensive HACCP plan.
A colour change indicates a presumptive positive result and for Listeria and Salmonella, these can be confirmed in just 2 minutes using the Microgen Latex kits.
