Do you need to make quick decisions on food safety and contamination?
The Maxwell® RSC PureFood Pathogen Kit offers a simple, automated extraction protocol to obtain high-quality pathogen DNA from a variety of food samples in as little as 40 min. Combine this DNA extraction with our qPCR analysis for reliable results in a fast, simple workflow.
-Automate extraction through simple protocol with fewer steps
-Isolate DNA from samples with little material
-No enzymatic pre-treatment needed
Figure 1. Detection of Aspergillus in food samples.
1 and 10 colony forming units (CFU) Aspergillus brasiliensis per gram of food were spiked into gummy and brownie samples and cultured for 24 and 48 hours. DNA was isolated and detected as described. Because the primer set used was not species specific, background Aspergillus spp. DNA was detected in both the sample types.
