Molecular serotyping discriminates Salmonella serotypes through differences in their DNA sequence. Even non-typable isolates can be assigned to a serotype, thereby offering a greater discriminative power than conventional techniques.
Check & Trace Salmonella is a rapid genetic test based on a microarray platform. Each position on the microarray represents a specific DNA marker associated with a unique Salmonella target sequence. Spots only become visible if the DNA markers exactly match the corresponding DNA sequences of the Salmonella isolate. The combination of present and absent spots yields a pattern.
The Check & Trace Salmonella technology offers strong benefits:
- Results within one day.
- Simple workflow.
- Confirms all Salmonella and identifies over 300 serotypes.
