Foodborne Pathogens

A pathogen is a synonym for a disease-causing microorganism. Food pathogens represent a special form of microbial pathogens, which are picked up and spread through food.
Below a number of pathogens are listed, for which BIOTECON Diagnostics offers suitable foodproof® DNA extraction and real-time PCR detection kits. Many of the pathogen kits have been certified by recognized institutions such as AOAC-RI, MicroVal or NordVal (see licensing options / validations), and thus independently tested for quality and safety.


foodproof® Listeria plus L. monocytogenes Detection LyoKit

The widespread occurrence of Listeria monocytogenes and other Listeria in the environment can result in the contamination of several food products. Our foodproof Listeria plus L. monocytogenes Detection LyoKit simultaneously detects the food-relevant Listeria sensu stricto species L. monocytogenes, L. innocua, L. seeligeri, L. welshimeri, L. ivanovii and L. marthii as well as the pathogenic species Listeria monocytogenes in a single PCR reaction. Our foodproof Listeria plus L. monocytogenes Detection LyoKit has been validated for all relevant food matrices, such as milk, cheeses, poultry, minced meat, seafood, ice cream, spices and environmental samples.

To detect only the single parameters you can find our foodproof Listeria Genus or Listeria monocytogenes Detection LyoKits in our portfolio.
