Application Note: Comparison of handling, time-to-result and validation parameters of commercially available PCR methods for Salmonella species detection and identification
9 September 2020

This application note compares the Thermo Scientific™ RapidFinder™ Salmonella species, Typhimurium and Enteritidis Multiplex PCR Kit to four other commercially available PCR methods. PCR kits are compared for differences in necessary equipment, bench-space needed, number and duration for sample handling steps, method complexity and certification provided by AOAC-RI and AFNOR NF VALIDATION. The PCR methods are also compared for multiplex capability and total sample throughput.
