Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. has announced the launch of SureTect PCR System that delivers test efficiencies for food safety laboratories that are testing for the most common bacterial pathogens.

With the new system, results for all targets and matrix types can be obtained in less than 24 hours of the food sample being received, leading to faster food release.

The SureTect System combines a real-time PCR instrument with bespoke software and convenient pre-filled reagent components that together with a single PCR protocol for a range of common targets and sample types, streamline the test workflow.

“Over time, we’ve seen our customers’ needs develop as they strive to meet increasing consumer and legislative demands, while continuing to gain cost efficiencies,” says Sumi Thaker, VP Global Marketing, Microbiology, Thermo Fisher Scientific.

“The need to streamline test workflow and reduce time to result means that speed, ease-of-use, reliability and value for money are primary considerations in today’s pathogen test selection.

Thaker continued, “With the SureTect System, food testing laboratories get easy set-up and result-reading, and flexible throughput, from fewer than 10 to several hundred tests per day. In addition, they have access to a team of microbiological experts to help them with evaluation, implementation as well as for day-to-day support.”

Assays for Salmonella species and Listeria monocytogenes are available now.

Assays for Listeria species and Escherichia coli O157:H7 will be released towards the end of quarter one this year with further tests already in development.
