Romer Labs listeria tests
test focuses on the total process, optimizing both the enrichment and
the detection portion of the test system. All systems have a
proprietary enrichment broth, ensuring superior recovery and growth of
the target if present in the food sample. In addition, the next
generation test strip gives you accurate, clear and rapid
RapidChek® for Listeria species is the first
system that offers a single step enrichment for both food and
environmental samples. Results are available within 40 h and 10
minutes. No sample transfers and a single media to prepare. In
addition, RapidChek® detects all six species of Listeria,
allowing an accurate and superior testing system.
technically advanced results you need while simplifying your testing
program. RapidChek® systems are available for E. coli O157, Salmonella and Listeria spp, and all products are AOAC approved.
Romer Labs has developed a highly accurate, true 24-hour test for processors looking to detect Listeria species in environmental samples within a shortened amount of time. RapidChek Listeria F.A.S.T. allows processors to move from the costly “test-and-hold” to
“test-and-sold” by reducing time-to-result while still maintaining high
The RapidChek Listeria F.A.S.T. test system delivers results
in 24 hours. The other AOAC certified 24-hour methods, while promoted
as "24-hour" tests, require 2-5 hours of additional analysis time after
enrichment to obtain results. RapidChek Listeria F.A.S.T. results are obtained within 15 minutes after enrichment.
The RapidChek Listeria F.A.S.T. system was validated for the detection of 50 strains of Listeria and 35 non-Listeria strains. All 50 Listeria strains were detected be the method (100% sensitivity). Only one out of the 35 non-Listeria strains
tested resulted in a very light line positive (97% specificity).
When running a side-by-side method comparison against the USDA-FSIS's
48-hour cultural method, RapidChek Listeria F.A.S.T. demonstrated equivalent performance against the reference method.
The RapidChek Listeria F.A.S.T. test system detects all six species of Listeria for a complete solution for environmental monitoring. Missing a single species of Listeria in your environmental monitoring program is denying you important
information about potential growth niches and possible contamination
RapidChek Listeria F.A.S.T. is now AOAC approved for environmental samples.
