RT-PCR foodproof® Pathogen Detection Kits



Introducing the REAL TIME PCR foodproof® Pathogen Detection Kits to ensure food safety.

Safe?  Absolutely!

        Are you foodproof® safe?



EMD Chemicals proudly announces the addition of Real Time PCR (RT PCR) based rapid pathogen detection kits to their impressive line of microbiology products.

The latest foodproof® pathogen detection kits from EMD Chemicals operate on the powerful Real Time PCR technology. All foodproof® pathogen detection kits are probe based molecular tests that are designed to amplify sequence specific DNA targets allowing both real time visualization and confirmation of presence or absence of target organism within 60-90 minutes. foodproof® pathogen detection kits offer a clear advantage of both specificity and speed when it comes to pathogen detection in the food industry.

A versatile product line, foodproof® Real Time PCR pathogen detection kits allows the detection of food pathogens, spoilage organisms and genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in a variety of foods such as-

  • meat and meat products
  • fish
  • dairy
  • fresh produce
  • ready-to-eat foods
  • beer
  • dehydrated infant formulae
  • chocolates
  • spices
  • whole grains
  • peanut butter and more

A comprehensive product portfolio, foodproof® Real Time PCR kits allows the detection of -

  • Salmonella
  • E.coli O157
  • Listeria genus
  • Listeria monocytogenes
  • Campylobacter
  • Brucella (coming soon)
  • Enterobacteriaceae plus Enterobacter sakazakii
  • Beer spoilage organisms
  • GMO screening
  • GMO Maize quantification kit
  • GMO Soya quantification kit
  • DNA sample preparation kits

The foodproof® Real Time PCR pathogen detection kits operate on two different probe based detection systems-

  • Hybridization probes
  • Hydrolysis / TaqMan probes


The two different probe systems allow maximum flexibility and customer choice with respect to instrument platform. The hybridization probes are compatible with Roche Light Cycler systems (LC 1,x., 2.0 and LC 480). The hydrolysis or TaqMan® probes operate on most TaqMan® Real Time thermo cyclers such as Stratagene (MX3005P), Applied Biosystems (ABI 7500), Eppendorf (realplex) and BioRad (iCycler) to name a few.

All foodproof® Real Time PCR pathogen detection kits are self-contained. The kits contain all necessary reagents, controls, enzymes, buffers, detailed instruction manual and thermo cycle programming manual to make handling easy, rapid and accurate.

In addition the foodproof® Real Time PCR pathogen detection kits boast a unique, internal safety feature that is Uracil-N-Glycosylase enzyme. This safety measure eliminates contamination with carry over DNA from previous PCR reactions thereby ensuring confident results every time!
