Rapid test for the detection of Salmonella from work surfaces and the processing environment.
The range of Path-Chek Hygiene Systems consist of tests for 3 organism types; Listeria, Coliforms and Salmonella.
All three systems utilise an identical test principle. Bacteria are recovered from the surface of food manufacturing or processing equipment using a pre-moistened swab, which is capable of neutralising commonly employed detergents and sanitisers. The sample swab is then transferred into an organism specific media (swabs have a conveniently located break point so that they can easily be broken off into the growth media). Following incubation, if the specific target bacteria are present on the sample swabs, bacterial growth will cause the colour of the media to change.
