Pathogen & Microbiology Analysis

To comply with stringent regulations and customer requirements, seafood & aquaculture processors must manage potential food safety hazards and take corrective actions to actively monitor critical points in their process. Ready-to-eat seafood products are especially susceptible to Listeria Monocytogenes contamination, and must be monitored and controlled. PerkinElmer offers fast, accurate and validated pathogen detection tests to screen raw materials, to verify adequacy of process controls, for environmental monitoring and for final product release.

Rapid Listeria Monocytogenes Detection

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.

Residue & Contaminant Analysis

Hazardous residues and contaminants can enter seafood through the environment, during processing, or during production through preventive or misuse of veterinary drugs in aquaculture. Analysis of chemical contaminants such as veterinary residues, toxins, pesticides, and other compounds is an essential part of seafood & aquaculture food safety programs. With shifting consumer preferences towards antibiotic free products, processors must verify antibiotic and hormone free marketing claims, and ensure conformity with country of export regulatory requirements. PerkinElmer offers a complete, sensitive and flexible range of state-of-the-art solutions, from high throughput ELISA screening systems to the most advanced triple quadrupole mass spectrometer, to rapid screen, detect and quantify all the possible contaminants in seafood at trace levels.

High Throughput Screening Solutions for Nitrofurans and Chloramphenicol in Shrimp Samples
