Introducing RapidChek® Listeria monocytogenes

Determine the presence of Listeria monocytogenes on site, with a 10 minute assay so you can react faster!

Listeriosis is a severe foodborne infection caused by eating food contaminated with the pathogenic bacteria Listeria monocytogenes. Ready-to-eat meats, dairy and seafood products as well as a variety of raw foods can become cross-contaminated during food processing if not controlled through an effective environmental monitoring program. There are many methods to choose from on the market, but as a processor you want something that is accurate, fast, cost-effective, and easy to use.

The RapidChek® Listeria monocytogenes technology couples a sensitive immuno-detection strip with a single proprietary enrichment media for fast and accurate results. With RapidChek®, Listeria monocytogenes can be detected within 44 – 48 hours in a variety of food matrices and environmental surfaces. The test system is AOAC certified for selected environmental surfaces, frozen cooked breaded chicken, hot dog, cured ham, frozen cooked shrimp and ice cream.
