Adiafood Real-time PCR testing system for food pathogens
Adiafood technology avoids false positives by using both primers and specific probes to achieve two levels of specificity and can therefore identify the pathogen with a great precision. It puts forward only one amplification protocol for ail the pathogens, thus allowing the simultaneous analysis of several pathogens on the same plate within less than 21 hours:
Salmonella spp. - 19 hours (11 hours on raw meat samples)
E.Coli O157 - 21 hours
E.Coli O157:H7 - 21 hours (10 hours on raw meat samples)
Listeria spp. environmental samples - 21 hours
Listeria monocytogenes - 21 hours
Campylobacter (detection and quantification)
The Adiafood system is unique because it incorporates an internal extraction and amplification control that validates the entire pro cess of the PCR, and checks for the absence of inhibitors. This ensures absolute confidence in the result. This control includes a coloured indicator that enables the technician to follow ail the analysis stages. The system's central control uses Sentinel software to simplify and automate the analysis. It can be easily installed and used to simplify the protocols and automatically provides reproducible interpretation of the results.
The Adiafood Listeria monocytogenes and Adiafood Salmonella spp kits have already obtained the
ISO 16140 validation for ail food matrixes with a total analysis time of 21 hours.
To complete the range and to specifically satisfy the raw meat market, Adiafood Salmonella spp has
been optimised and is validation pending in parallel with Adiafood E. coli 0 157H7 according to a short protocol.
