BIOLOGICAL SAFETY: Form follows function: Working with, not against, your biosafety cabinet

This webinar first explains the basic functioning of a Class II, Type A2 biosafety cabinet and how it provides protection. The presentation then proceeds to explain how, in light of that knowledge, a cabinet operator should work in the cabinet so as not to interfere with the airflow and other features that provide biocontainment for that operator.

PCR: A serotype-specific PCR method for detecting Salmonella spp. in poultry

Dr. Frieda Jørgensen outlines the current investigation of Salmonella Enteritidis, sharing how RapidFinder PCR enables rapid detection of contaminated products. Jørgensen highlights how this method can be applied to primary and secondary enrichments and the confirmation of isolates and why this method was especially important in analyzing products that were co-contaminated with other serovars where the presence of Salmonella Enteritidis was realized only as a result of the PCR.
