Tenta Speed L. mono - A new rapid testing method for Listeria spp. and Listeria monocytogenes in food with detection in six hours!
Listeria monocytogenes plays an important role as an infectious agent in many different ready-to-eat foods.e.g. meat and fish products, cheese and fresh-cut salads. For this reason food manufacturers often carry out tests for the release of batches. These tests take at least 24 hours, in many cases depending on the method, this can even require serval days.
By using the new rapid testing method Tenta Speed L. mono, developed by the BAV INSTITUT, the release time of batches can be significantly reduced, corrective actions can be taken faster.
This new rapid testing method is based on the principle of real-time PCR. The difference to existing systems is that we proceed without a pre-enrichment or any other cultivation.
Tenta Speed L. mono has a detection limit of < 20 colony forming units/g with detection in six hours. This is sufficient for the testing of many food samples as the legal criteria for ready-to-eat is 100 CFU/g.
In our Tentamus laboratories we regularly perform the tests for listeria. We provide you with fast and reliable results.
