Discover Food Safety and Quality
When dealing with food safety issues such as pathogens and microbiology testing, our commitment to you is to provide a range of solutions across multiple technologies, products, and services that meets or exceeds the safety testing needs of food processors. Our solutions offer more efficiency and increased accuracy and sensitivity for better yields in real time with minimal training.
Being able to accurately and rapidly test raw meat, and specifically beef, for bacterial contaminants such as E. coli is necessary to ensure those food products are safe to consume. The Solus One E. coli O157 is an extremely sensitive and specific enhanced ELISA for the screening of large samples of raw beef to detect E. coli O157:H7 with time to results within 12 - 14 hours. With results one day faster than other molecular or culture methods, the Solus One assay is efficient.
The Solus Listeria monocytogenes ELISA test kit provides laboratories with an easy-to-use, cost-effective, highly efficient method for the detection of Listeria monocytogenes in food and environmental samples.
In a fast-paced food testing environment, processing samples quickly and efficiently is critical, enabling production facilities to take immediate action when necessary. As sample volumes fluctuate, your lab must have the flexibility to cope with varying demands, maximizing throughput with optimal use of resources. That’s the kind of capability our Solus One™ Salmonella pathogen detection system can provide. The Solus One Salmonella assay is highly efficient and for next-day detection of Salmonella in food and environmental samples. The immunoassay has been developed alongside dedicated selective enrichment media and can be automated using the Dynex DS2 microplate processor for a complete pathogen detection system.
Solus E. Coli O157™ offers food testing laboratories an easy to use, cost effective and efficient method for the detection of E. coli O157™ in food and environmental samples. Presented in an immunoassay format, Solus E. coli O157™ is versatile and can be used manually or in conjunction with automation.
The Solus Listeria ELISA test kit provides laboratories with an easy-to-use, cost-effective, highly efficient method for the detection of Listeria in food and environmental samples.
A highly efficient assay for next-day detection of Listeria spp. in environmental samples, Solus One Listeria provides results from a single enrichment step in less than 25 hours. Solus One Listeria extends our pathogen systems range, which comprise of specifically designed immunoassay kits, dedicated selective enrichment media and automated liquid handling.
Our Solus Salmonella ELISA kit is versatile and can be used manually or in conjunction with automation. It's robust, reliable and certified by AOAC Performance Tested Method program and NF VALIDATION by AFNOR Certification to ISO 16140. Our test system is perfect for labs looking to achieve higher sample throughput, improved laboratory workflow, reduced technician time, and increased capacity for testing.
Solus Pathogen Detection System offer food testing laboratories a highly efficient method for the detection of Salmonella, Listeria, and E. coli O157 in food and environmental samples. Presented in an immunoassay format, our pathogen tests are versatile and can be used manually or in conjunction with automation. Our tests are robust, reliable, and validated by AFNOR to ISO 16140 and/or through AOAC performance tested method (PTM) or Official Method of Analysis (OMA) schemes.
ALS Rotherham test over half a million samples each year. Samples include raw and cooked meats, fish, dairy, chocolate and a number of ready-to-eat products. The laboratory offers a mixture of conventional culture methods and automated immunoassays to process over 2000 samples per day.
