Salmonella stands out among pathogenic organisms for its high prevalence. The illness it causes, salmonellosis, is the most commonly reported cause of food-borne illness today.
Take a comprehensive look at 3M molecular technology compared to alternatives like polymerase chain reaction (PCR). With the combination of 3M™ Molecular Detection Assay 2 - Campylobacter and 3M™ Molecular Detection Assay 2 - Salmonella, you can monitor poultry for both pathogens simultaneously in one easy-to-use, accurate process.
A robust environmental monitoring program is crucial because of the dangers inherent in the poultry industry. Join Dr. Martin Wiedmann of Cornell University for this 5-part environmental monitoring webinar series from 3M Food Safety.
