PCR Kit Cronobacter spp (Enterobacter sakazakii)

An AFNOR certified Cronobacter spp (Enterobacter sakazakii) Real Time PCR kit is available at ADNucleis.

ADNucleis has positioned itself in Food quality and hygiene market for the fast testing of milk powder and infant formula with its Cronobacter spp (Enterobacter sakazakii) PCR kit.

The harmful effect of this bacteria on at risk individuals is well known. In France, the numerous cases of food poisoning, in the 90s early 2000s, with an infant mortality rate, among those affected, of about 40 to 80% are proof of these harmful effects.

ADNucleis is AFNOR certified for its diagnostic product, Cronobacter spp (Enterobacter sakazakii) NF VALIDATION 16140.

Like all ADNucleis PCR kits, the analysis is fast (less than 24 hours, including pre-enrichment) and the cost is particularly competitive since ADNucleis has reduced its price to that of culture method namely 2€ per amplification kit (all real-time PCR platforms are compatible with this analysis)

Operator time is very short and can be fully automated, which gives PCR an undeniable competitive advantage; it is estimated at less than 2 minutes per sample; the rest of the time is instrument time (55mn).
