Two new PCR assays from DuPont Qualicon have received AFNOR certification as alternative methods for detecting Listeria and Listeria monocytogenes. These assays, developed in collaboration with Oxoid, Ltd., use optimized enrichment media to provide next-day test results from food and environmental samples.
AFNOR Certification is an internationally recognized European system that validates food testing methods according to the EN ISO 16140 protocol. The AFNOR validation mark certifies that a multi-phase validation study by approved expert laboratories demonstrated equivalent results between the alternative test method and the traditional standardized method. This certification meets all the requirements of European regulation 2073/2005 relating to microbiological criteria applicable to food.
