Applicable to environmental samples and a broad range of food types (dairy products, ready-to-eat and raw meats, fish and seafood, fruits and vegetables) and using a standard enrichment medium, the 3M Molecular Detection Assay 2 Listeria and 3M Molecular Detection Assay 2 Listeria monocytogenes test kits provide a faster time-to-result after as little as 24 hours of enrichment. These assays use a streamlined workflow that is 30 percent faster than first generation assays, enabled by new lysis chemistry, and features a unique color-change indicator for increased control during assay processing. This results in fewer steps for today’s busy pathogen testing laboratories looking to enhance productivity, without compromising accuracy.First and second generation assays can be run simultaneously using the same compact 3M Molecular Detection Instrument, maintaining high efficiency and productivity in the laboratory. In order to use the new assays on their existing instrument, customers simply need to download and install a free software upgrade available at In addition to making the new assay platform compatible, the software enhancements feature a redesigned user interface and new features that allow for easier, more efficient data entry and improved administrative control.
