Solus One Salmonella for next day detection in cocoa products.

Extension to scope

Solus One Salmonella has recently been granted an AOAC PTM extension to scope to now include cocoa products in our validated matrices.  

We are extremely proud and excited to have achieved this extension and we are looking forward to helping our customers expand the range of products that they can test using the Solus from PerkinElmer Pathogen Detection System.

Solus One Salmonella was compared to FDA Chapter 5 and ISO 6579-1:2017 for 375g samples of cocoa ingredients and finished product and was shown to have a performance equivalent to that of the reference methods.

The full process from enrichment to negative or presumptive positive result can take as little as 22 hours and, with the option of running the assay either manually or by automation, customers can enjoy a flexible approach to testing that fits with other work being carried out in the lab. With standard confirmation testing, positive results can be available a day earlier than molecular methods.
