Detecting food-borne pathogens as quickly and reliably as possible is a matter of public safety. Your food testing facility needs to prepare for both routine testing and outbreak scenarios. You can trust the accuracy, speed, and efficiency of our mericon real-time PCR-based workflows for pathogen detection.

We have one of the broadest ranges of ready-to-use pathogen detection kits on the market. The kits are comaptible with a range of automated solutions, including proven, user-friendly sample preparation instruments, such as the QIAcube and QIAsymphony SP, and assay setup instruments, such as the QIAgility and QIAsymphony AS. We understand how important it is to be able to trust your results in pathogen detection so we validate all of our methods in-house and through field testing. Furthermore, our automated and manual workflows are undergoing validation with external institutions, such as AOAC-RI and AFNOR. When you think food safety, then think mericon, because trust is the most important ingredient.

Automated Pathogen Detection Workflows
With a single set of instruments, you can fully process 144 samples in around 7 hours with minumum hands-on time.
High-throughput with high quality and process safety
Manual Pathogen Detection Workflows
Manual purification of bacterial DNA and assay setup put quality results at your fingertips and are excellent for low-throughput testing facilities and labs.
Low-throughput with high performance and quality
AOAC-RI- and AFNOR-validated Salmonella Detection Workflow
Both the automated and manual versions of this workflow for salmonella DNA detection have been validated by the AOAC-RI and AFNOR.
Automated and manual workflow
Legionella spp. Detection Workflow
Reliable and optimized technology for specific detection of the causative agents of legionellosis in water samples.
