Take a Closer Look and Take Control of Your Processes

If you need to make quick decisions about potential food spoilage and contamination, the Maxwell® RSC PureFood Pathogen Kit offers a simple extraction protocol to obtain high-quality bacterial DNA from a variety of food sample types. The kit works with inhibiting sample types, and can lyse both Gram+ or Gram– bacteria, eliminating laborious sample preparation steps like enzymatic pretreatment. 

The extracted DNA is ready for advanced downstream molecular analyses including NGS, serotyping, and identification of spoilage organisms. The high-performance Maxwell® chemistries coupled with the trusted benchtop Maxwell® RSC instruments allow you to purify bacterial DNA from food samples in as little as 40 minutes, giving you the ability to get answers more quickly.

The Maxwell® RSC Instruments are supplied with preprogrammed purification methods and use predispensed reagent cartridges to maximize simplicity and convenience. The Maxwell® RSC Instrument can process from 1 to 16 samples and the Maxwell® RSC 48 can process from 1 to 48 samples in a single run.


Isolate Pathogen DNA from Many Food Sample Types

This method has been used to isolate pathogen DNA from a number of different food samples including E. coli 0157:H7 from uncooked beef, Salmonella enterica from uncooked chicken, and Listeria monocytogenes from whole milk.
Comparison of total DNA and E. coli 0157:H7 DNA extracted from cilantro samples spiked with the indicated amounts of  E. coli 0157:H7 bacteria. The total DNA concentration was assessed using the QuantiFluor® ONE dsDNA System.
Comparison of total DNA and E. coli 0157:H7 DNA extracted from cilantro samples spiked with the indicated amounts of  E. coli 0157:H7 bacteria. The concentration of  E. coli 0157:H7  DNA was assessed by qPCR with specific primers.


Simple, automated protocol requires minimal hands-on steps.
Avoid organic extractions and laborious sample preprocessing steps.
Use an optimized system to extract bacterial DNA from many food samples.
