E. coli 0157 and Salmonella

Because some foodstuffs require the fastest and most reliable microbiological assays in order to be released in time, Pall offers the GeneDisc® Plate for E. coli O157 & Salmonella spp. This product simultaneously detects pathogenic E. coli O157 and Salmonella spp in less than nine hours in raw beef samples. As it targets pathogenic E. coli O157, this can reduce the number of false-positives (non- pathogenic E. coli).

Combining the tests of these two pathogens from the same enrichment broth with the same GeneDisc plates helps to reduce your operating costs.

Reducing time-to-result for major food-borne pathogens with a reliable and easy-to-use assay, the GeneDisc plate for pathogenic E. coli O157 & Salmonella may be used either onsite or through a service laboratory. Please contact us for a list of available laboratories.
