Eurofins GeneScan has received AFNOR NF certification for four Listeria kits.

The NF Validation certificate was granted by AFNOR Certification for BACGene Listeria Multiplex, BACGene Listeria monocytogenes and BACGene Listeria spp. real time PCR kits as well as the BACSpec Listeria ELISA kit.

Validation (according to the protocol EN ISO 16140-2:2016) for BACGene Listeria spp. and BACGene Listeria Multiplex was to detect Listeria spp. in all human food products and production environmental samples.

BACGene Listeria monocytogenes and BACGene Listeria Multiplex was backed to detect L. monocytogenes in all human food products and production environmental samples.

BAC Spec Listeria was approved to detect Listeria spp. in all human food and production environmental samples.

For all the above kits MALDI-TOF is a confirmatory method as part of the certification.

BACGene Listeria Multiplex, BACGene Listeria monocytogenes and BACGene Listeria spp are for use with Agilent AriaMX and Bio-Rad CFX96 Touch.

BACSpec Listeria, the ELISA test, is one plate with 96 wells. Time to result including enrichment is 44-52 hours (less than two hours after enrichment) with a detection limit of 1 cfu/25g.

NF Validation also extended the scope of Gene-Up Listeria monocytogenes from bioMérieux to all human food products and production environmental samples.

Validation renewals (according to the protocol EN ISO 16140-2:2016) of Tempo EC from bioMérieux and iQ-Check Cronobacter spp. from Bio-Rad were also obtained.
