Features and Benefits

A single protocol for all pathogens means you can perform up to 96 tests of multiple types in one run. Progressive loop-mediated isothermal DNA amplification (LAMP) technology gives you more control over every step of your testing process. And when compared using metrics such as time to result, throughput, unit size and workflow, the 3M Molecular Detection System outperforms other methods and manufacturers.

The 3M Molecular Detection System currently has eight assays available – Salmonella, Listeria species and Listeria monocytogenes, 2 choices for Shiga toxin-producing E. coli (STEC), E. coli O157 (including H7), Cronobacter and Campylobacter.
