Enhance your existing environmental monitoring program with our listeria rapid test!
The danger of the Listeria monocytogenes associated disease Listeriosis is real, with a high fatality rate of up to 30% among risk groups. Usually, various foods can cause these outbreaks. Some examples are soft cheese, delicatessen meats, and vegetable products.
Listeria monocytogenes are found widely in soil, water, and livestock environments. Therefore, it is not a question of whether it will enter a food factory or not, much rather a question of when. This pathogen is very robust, growing even at 4°C or in high salt concentrations. Thus, if it does enter a factory, there is a high risk it can persist in the factory environment.
There is an increasing awareness in the food industry for the lack of reliability provided by the mere examination of end products. In short, only testing final products means accepting an incrementing risk of product contamination.
Environmental monitoring with cost-effective Listeria rapid tests helps to detect risk hot spots early and adapt hygiene measures. Consequently, you can eliminate Listeria monocytogenes before they can get into the product or establish themselves as permanent residents of your factory, thus avoiding expensive recalls and reputation damage.
Finding Listeria monocytogenes in the factory environment is like playing the game of battleships. In other words, you guess where the unseen enemy is and make a cross – just like taking a swab – maybe you find your hostile warship, maybe you don’t. At NEMIS, we specialize in disrupting the game of environmental monitoring and will give you an unfair but winning advantage.
This is why our N-LightTM Listeria rapid test is your risk mitigation tool of choice.
