3M Molecular Detection System
Pathogen testing. Pure and simple.
Food processing is your business.
Food safety is ours.
Consumers trust companies such as yours to deliver safe, quality foods every day. Pathogens are a real threat to public health and to your business. 3M listened to your concerns and created a fast, simpler detection method — a solution that delivers accurate results, impacts your bottom line andprotects your brand.
The 3M Molecular Detection System uses multiple, specific primers targeting distinct regions of the genome, combined with real-time detection of the amplification, to deliver sensitive and specific results. Continuous amplification by a unique, high-fidelity DNA polymerase makes our system less prone to matrix interference. This was designed to help you perform fewer repeat tests and make critical decisions faster.
Our system makes testing easy, increasing technician productivity and efficiency. All you need is an enriched sample, a laptop and the 3M Molecular Detection System. Using a DNA polymerase that is tolerant to low-quality DNA samples allows for a simple assay set-up with fewer steps. Your lab can even test and display results for multiple organisms in a single run. The simplicity and robustness of our technology combine to deliver a low-cost instrument with minimal maintenance requirements and less downtime for your lab.
