Life Technologies understands the regulatory and business demands on egg producers and the importance of quickly releasing safe eggs to market without compromising your reputation or bottom line. Our easy-to-use FDA/NPIP–approved egg and environmental testing solutions are designed to accurately screen for Salmonella spp. and Salmonella Enteritidis with exceptional speed (results in typically 27 hours) and specificity, helping to reduce false positives and unnecessary inventory hold times.

When Salmonella Enteritidis is present, our innovative serotyping technology can help minimize your business’s exposure to outbreak scenarios by rapidly pinpointing the location of the pathogen in your supply chain. From fast, accurate, and easily implemented food testing solutions, to our award-winning global service and support, Life Technologies can help you minimize your risk and maximize your competitive edge.

Sample Prep Solutions For Every Need

Rather than taking a one-size-fits-all approach, Life Technologies provides multiple validated sample prep options for pathogen testing that easily integrate into food testing workflows with minimal operator training. The protocols have been tested on a wide range of samples, including environmental, chocolate, infant formula, and soft cheeses.

  • Less than 30 samples per day
  • Efficiently removes inhibitors
  • Automated sample preparation
  • Minimal training required

PrepSEQ® Rapid Spin Sample Preparation Kit ›

  • Less than 30 samples per day
  • Efficiently removes inhibitors
  • Minimal equipment costs

Validated Pathogen Detection Kits

MicroSEQ® kits offer exceptional accuracy and time-to-results for the detection of various food borne pathogens in one easy-to-use platform, and selected kits have been validated by global assurance organizations such as AOAC, AFNOR, and NPIP. TaqMan® Salmonella Enteritidis kit detects the presence or absence of Salmonella Enteritidis from pooled egg and environmental samples in typically 27 hours. This solution offers complete equivalency to the FDA BAM method for environmental and egg testing and is NPIP approved for rapid screening of environmental samples.

  • Internal positive control minimizes false positives and negatives
  • Faster time-to-results versus alternative methods, helps reduce inventory hold times
  • Easy-to-use lyophilized format improves testing consistency (reproducibility)
  • Resistance to PCR inhibitors results in broad sample type compatibility and minimizes “do-over’s”
