A Complete Range for the Detection of Listeria

Dec 20 2005 Read 2458 Times

Oxoid Limited is able to offer food microbiologists one of the widest selections of products available for the rapid and convenient detection of Listeria from food and environmental samples:

Oxoid Novel Enrichment Broth - Listeria is a unique new selective enrichment broth that eliminates the need for sub-culturing from a pre-enrichment broth, providing a simpler procedure and allowing faster detection of Listeria-positive samples.

Oxoid Chromogenic Listeria Agar is an innovative chromogenic medium that uses colour to improve the isolation, enumeration and presumptive identification of Listeria species and allows the differentiation of pathogenic Listeria monocytogenes and Listeria ivanovii from other Listeria species.

The Oxoid Listeria Rapid Test combines a specially optimised enrichment procedure and an innovative rapid end-point test to detect Listeria spp. within just 43 hours. This highly sensitive and specific test has received AFNOR, AOAC-RI, EMMAS and DanVal approval.

Confirmation of Listeria isolates can be performed quickly using the new Oxoid Listeria Diagnostic Reagents Test Kit, a rapid latex agglutination test for the detection of Listeria spp. from selective culture. Alternatively, the rapid colorimetric test, O.B.I.S. mono allows the quick differentiation of L. monocytogenes from other Listeria spp., or the self-contained, biochemical-based Microbactä Listeria Identification System (12L) provides the definitive identification of pathogenic Listeria species in as little as 4 hours.
