Fast & Reliable Listeria Test Kits

Strict regulations and a rising market pressure demand fast and reliable Listeria detection solutions.

The Romer Labs RapidChek® Listeria, Listeria NextDay™ and Listeria monocytogenes product lines were developed to deliver the simplicity, speed and high accuracy necessary in everyday Listeria and L. monocytogenes testing.

The test kits utilize highly selective enrichment media coupled with an advanced lateral flow immunochemical device and a proprietary antibody mix. Use these kits to detect all Listeria strains and L. monocytogenes in particular in various foodstuffs and environmental applications.

Fast and simple procedure

The simple preparation of the one-step enrichment media, and quick and easy sample preparation enable test results within 24 or 44 hours. These can be read easily and directly from the developed strip, without the need for specialized and costly equipment.

Reliable results

The RapidChek® Listeria, Listeria NextDay™ and Listeria monocytogenes product lines use novel proprietary media, enhancing both the specificity and the sensitivity of the overall method. Numerous certifications (Opens external link in new windowAOAC) confirm the high standards of analytical accuracy and result reliability.

Easy resource management

The simple-to-use lateral flow technology offers high throughput scalability. From one to hundreds of samples at once, strips can be read between 10 and 20 minutes after strip development. Kits can be stored at room temperature and offer a long shelf-life of up to 18 months.

The unique high performance single-step enrichment media of the RapidChek® Listeria, RapidChek® Listeria NextDay™ and Listeria monocytogenes system can be stored in liquid form, after autoclaving, at room temperatures for 4 weeks.

The RapidChek® Listeria Comb System offers high throughput advantages (Opens external link in new windowvideo) as it speeds up the testing procedure.
