Microbials Test

Test Summary: Real-time quantitative PCR (qPCR) assays using a multiplex system of primers to detect presence of potential pathogens within the sample matrix.    


Microbials Tested: 

  • Shiga-toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC) 

  • Salmonella spp. 

  • Aspergillus fumigatus 

  • Aspergillus flavus 

  • Aspergillus niger 

  • Aspergillus terreus  

Methodology:  Presence or absence of organisms are detected via real-time quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) in various sample matrices.  An internal plant DNA reaction control ensures accurate detection of microbial species for every reaction.    


Minimum Sample Size Requirements: 


  • Plant Material: 4 grams 

  • Concentrates: 2 grams or 2 mL 

  • Infused Products: 2 Units, 2 grams or 2 mL 


Collection Container Requirements:  Sterile and spill proof container such as a screw top vial or test tube.  Sample shall be collected observing good aseptic techniques.


Turn Around Time:  3 to 5 business days from lab receipt of sample. 


Cost: $120.00
