Fast & Reliable Pathogen Confirmation

The Romer Labs immuno-magnetic-separation kits for Salmonella Enteritidis and non-O157 STEC are FDA Method Equivalent, AOAC-approved or listed in the USDA FSIS MLG

They are used to confirm presumptive positive samples and isolate specific serogroups from complex samples. This could be done, for example, after enrichment with the RapidChek® SELECT™ Salmonella or the RapidChek® E. coli media.

The kits are designed to reduce the presence of other Salmonella or E. coli serogroups, and concentrates the targeted serogroup to aid in the isolation of the pathogen from selective agar plates.

Fast and simple procedure

For confirmation, each coated magnetic particle solution is added to the presumptive positive enrichment and incubated with magnetic beads. If the pathogen is present, it will bind to the magnetic particles via the proprietary antibodies.

A magnet is then used to concentrate the bound magnetic particles and the remaining enrichment is discarded, leaving only magnetic particles bound to the target pathogen. Confirmation procedures are then continued per the reference method with the concentrated sample.

Reliable results

Numerous certifications (Opens external link in new windowAOAC, Opens external link in new windowFDA, Opens external link in new windowNPIPOpens external link in new windowUSDA) confirm the high standards of analytical accuracy and result reliability.

CONFIRM™ Salmonella Enteritidis

 

Certification and Approvals

 AOAC (for environmental drag swabs)


 FDA Method Equivalent (for environmental drag swabs)

Within an enriched environmental drag swab sample, there are mixed populations of Salmonella species typically present, creating a challenging environment for the isolation of Group D1, including SE isolates.

The use of the RapidChek® CONFIRM™ IMS kit reduces the presence of other non-SE, Salmonella species through washing steps and concentrates the Group D1 species.

CONFIRM™ non-O157 STEC

Certification and Approvals 

 Listed in the USDA FSIS MLG 5B.04 for the confirmation of non-O157 STECs

The RapidChek® CONFIRM™ non-O157 STEC IMS confirmation kit uses specific, high-affinity antibodies, each attached to separate magnetic particles. Should any of the non-O157 STECs be present, it will bind to the magnetic particles via the antibody. When the sample is plated to selective agar for confirmation, E. coli O26, O45, O103, O111, O121, and O145 are the predominant colonies that form, increasing the likelihood of picking that organism from a plate.
