Atlas Listeria monocytogenes Detection Assay

111301 ROKA Atlas L mono

The Atlas® Listeria monocytogenes LmG2 Detection Assay has been certified by the AOAC Research Institute Performance Tested MethodsSM program and assigned PTM certification #111301.

Listeria monocytogenes Overview

Listeria monocytogenes is a Gram-positive facultative anaerobe that is widely found in the environment and is able to grow at low temperatures, low water activity, or high salt concentrations. Listeriosis, the disease caused by L. monocytogenes, is a concern for at-risk populations such as the elderly, immunocompromised individuals, and pregnant woman. Listeriosis is the third leading cause of death among foodborne pathogens, with a mortality rate of about 20%.1

Listeria monocytogenes may be found on a variety of raw foods, such as uncooked meats, raw milk and its derived products, and fruits and vegetables. Additionally L. monocytogenes may also be detected in foods that become contaminated by environmental exposure during post-intervention processing.

Rapid and accurate monitoring of L. monocytogenes is a critical need for producers of at-risk foods. This allows for faster intervention, minimization of risk, and brand protection.

Atlas Listeria monocytogenes LmG2 Detection Assay

The Atlas Listeria monocytogenes LmG2 Detection Assay is a rapid, accurate, and reliable molecular test for L. monocytogenes detection from a variety of food and environmental samples. The assay is designed for the Atlas® System— a fully automated molecular pathogen detection system.
