 3M Food Safety, a US-based provider of food safety solutions, has anounced that its new '3M Molecular Detection Assay – Salmonella' has received AOAC-PTM Certification from the AOAC Research Institute’s Performance Tested Methods Program.

 

The AOAC-PTM certification validates 3M's unique, molecular approach as equivalent to or better than standard FDA and USDA reference methods for the detection of Salmonella.

The 3M Molecular Detection System, which was first introduced in December 2011, is a combination of two technologies - isothermal DNA amplification and bioluminescence detection. It offers a reliable and rapid qualitative method of pathogen detection in enriched food, feed and food process environmental samples.

The AOAC Research Institute bases certification of methods on independent study results demonstrating that a given method meets the claims expressed in package inserts.

For the 3M Molecular Detection Assay - Salmonella method PTM study, artificially contaminated samples were enriched and evaluated by the 3M Molecular Detection System as well as the appropriate FDA or USDA FSIS reference methods.

No statistically significant differences in sample results were identified between the 3M Molecular Detection Assay - Salmonella and these reference methods.

The company said that it is seeking additional global method validations for the 3M Molecular Detection Assay - Salmonella to present to the marketplace.
