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.
