Sample Prep Solutions For Every Need

Pathatrix® Auto System

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.

Pathatrix® Auto System and Kits ›

  • Supports high sample volumes
  • Reduces false positive and indeterminate results
  • Cuts downstream detection cost by up to 90%
  • 15-minute automated run time helps improve productivity
  • Supports PCR, Culture and ELISA detection methods

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. Selected kits have been validated and certified by the leading global assurance organizations including AOAC, AFNOR, and NPIP.

  • 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”
