3M Food Safety has stated that the 3M Molecular Detection Assay 2 - Campylobacter, a rapid molecular test method launched earlier this year, has earned Performance Tested Methods (PTM) certificate number 111803 from the AOAC Research Institute.

The assay utilises loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) technology to overcome the complex instrumentation requirements of traditional, PCR tools, simplifying the testing process and giving technicians greater control and better efficiency.

The AOAC-PTM designation validates the 3M Molecular Detection Assay 2 - Campylobacter with 3M Campylobacter Enrichment Broth as an improvement and/or equivalent alternative to USDA FSIS and ISO reference methods for detecting Campylobacter jejuni, Campylobacter coli and Campylobacter lari.

An independent lab tested the technology on a variety of matrices, including whole raw chicken carcass rinses, raw poultry parts rinses, raw ground poultry rinses, raw turkey carcass sponges and breaded chicken nuggets. Inclusivity or exclusivity and robustness tests were performed as well to assess the assay’s performance.

“We are excited to receive this certification from the AOAC Research Institute,” said Cynthia Zook, commercialisation manager, 3M Food Safety.

She added, “LAMP technology continues to perform exceptionally well compared to conventional tests. We’re proud to be a part of a sea-change in the industry as we continue to innovate and create technologies like this one that are as simple, accurate, fast and reliable as possible.”
