1-2 test for selmonella

The 1-2 Test for Salmonella is an antibody based assay for the detection of Salmonella in food and environmental samples.

The assay incorporates immunodiffusion technology to provide accurate and rapid results following a simple 1 or 2 step enrichment protocol. If present, Salmonella move through the motility media as Salmonella specific antibodies diffuse into the media from the opposite direction. The antibodies bind to the Salmonella antigen to form a visually apparent immunoband indicating a positive test result.

1-2 Test Features

  • Visual results: Results are interpreted visually by observing the development of an immunoband, a characteristic immobilization pattern of cells. No equipment is required to read results
  • Rapid, reliable results: Results are available as soon as 14 hours after enrichment
  • No equipment required

VisualImmuno Precipitate (VIP) Qualitative Analysis

Salmonella, Listeria spp., Escherichia coli O157:H7

VIP Gold is a lateral flow immunoassay for the detection of pathogens in food and environmental surfaces. If present, the target antigen and its associated particles will become bound to the test line antibodies to form a visually apparent line.

EIA (Enzyme ImmunoAssay) Kit

Salmonella/Listeria/EHEC (E. Coli. 0157)/Campylobacter

Assurance EIA (Enzyme ImmunoAssay) incorporates proven antibody-antigen “sandwich” assay technology for the detection of food borne pathogens in both product and environmental samples. Highly specific antibodies coated to polystyrene microtiter plate wells capture and bind the target antigen, if present. A detection antibody linked to a conjugate enzyme is introduced to form an antibody/antigen/antibody sandwich. Finally, a substrate is added and converted by the conjugate enzyme to produce a color change indicating the presence of the target pathogen.
