3M Food Safety, St. Paul, Minn., announced its new 3M Molecular Detection Assay 2 – Campylobacter with 3M Campylobacter Enrichment Broth, providing more efficient testing for a key pathogen associated with poultry production.

This process is said to significantly test faster than alternatives like PCR, immunoassay and culture methods, and have a streamlined protocol for Campylobacter and Salmonella, meaning the system is able to perform up to 96 tests of multiple types in one 60-minute run.

The 3M Campylobacter Enrichment Broth requires only five steps, and eliminates the need for microaerophilic incubation, supplements, blood, organic solvents or autoclaving the broth, only requiring the addition of sterile water.
