DuPont Qualicon has released a genetic-based test that allows food companies to detect Listeria on environmental surfaces in eight hours. This assay is the first commercial application of Reverse-Transcriptase PCR for bacterial testing in food and the latest addition to the suite of BAX system products.

"This flexible test can give food companies clear, precise results at the end of a shift," said Kevin Huttman, president of DuPont Qualicon.

"With fast, accurate detection of Listeria, even at low concentrations, food processors get the information they need to take action sooner and release product faster."

Thermo Fisher Scientific distributes the BAX system products in Australia and New Zealand.
