Reliable real-time PCR tests for all kinds of fish and seafood products

We offer a wide range of real-time PCR and ELISA tests for the detection of microorganisms, as well as other parameters relevant to the fish and seafood industry.
The foodproof® Norovirus (GI, GII) plus the Hepatitis A Virus Detection Kit can detect human pathogenic noroviruses of genogroups I and II, and hepatitis A virus genotypes 1-3 complete with a process control. The multiplex virus test system has been validated on various matrices such as oysters, mussels, shrimps, fish fillets, leafy vegetables, berries as well as on water samples.

Our foodproof Vibrio Detection LyoKit Kit can detect all human pathogenic Vibrio strains (V. parahaemolyticus, V. vulnificus and V. cholerae) as well as the relevant pathogenicity factors. By using Reagent D, false-positive results can be effectively eliminated from dead cells and free DNA.

We also offer real-time PCR assays for the reliable detection of other bacterial pathogens such as Listeria monocytogenes, L. genus, Salmonella, Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus cereus and Clostridium. The microproof® Legionella Quantification LyoKit quantitatively detects Legionella spp., L. pneumophila and the highly clinically-relevant L. pneumophila serogroup 1 in only 4 h.

In addition to the kits for the detection of bacterial or viral pathogens, we develop, as part of our portfolio, real-time PCR tests for the analysis of spoilage agents (yeasts and molds), allergens and genetically modified organisms (GMOs).

Our foodproof DNA and RNA extraction methods are simple, fast and optimized for all sample matrices within the fish and seafood processing industry.

For the detection of allergens and antibiotics, there are a wide variety of innovative ELISA tests available.

Advantages of our products:

  • Specific Listeria detection kits, easy-to-use lyophilized mixes. Our foodproof Listeria monocytogenes Detection LyoKit is validated by AOAC-RI and successfully certified according to ISO 16140 by NordVal. A new additional multiplex kit is capable of detecting Listeria and L. monocytogens in one assay.
  • Our foodproof Norovirus (GI, GII) plus Hepatitis A Virus Detection Kit is a multiplex kit for the identification of human pathogenic noroviruses (genogroup I and II) and hepatitis A virus and includes a process control for each sample.
  • Live / dead differentiation from all human pathogenic Vibrio strains (V. parahaemolyticus, V. vulnificus and V. cholerae) within our kits is made possibleby the use of Reagent D, plus detection of the relevant pathogenicity factors.
