3M Food Safety, a division of diversified technology company 3M (NYSE:MMM), announced on Wednesday approval of its 3M Molecular Detection Assay Listeria monocytogenes by the AOAC
Performance Tested Methods programme, with Certification #051401.
Their presence at the upcoming AOAC
Annual Meeting gives Bioo Scientific the opportunity to meet with prospective customers and introduce them to the latest advances in food and feed safety testing.
This is just one more example, but it is important that the industry realises that AOAC
accreditation does not mean the test will 'work' in every case.

The BAX[R] System 8-hour Listeria Assay has been approved and certified by the AOAC
Research Institute (AOAC

Using a protein-tagging technology that already has AOAC
and AACC-approval for many food products, the analyzer's rapid test results make it suitable for quick analysis in all types of food production environments.
