Be confident in your pathogen testing process and save time and labor costs with ready-to-use reagents, a single protocol for all pathogens and same- or next-day results. Plus, with its space-saving design and ability to test for multiple types of pathogens simultaneously, the 3M™ Molecular Detection System helps you work efficiently and release products quickly so you can protect consumers, your business and your bottom line.
3M Food Safety listened to our customers to develop an innovative approach to pathogen detection that gives organizations control over their time, protocol, process, productivity, quality and brand.
Powered by unique technologies — Loop-Mediated Isothermal Amplification (LAMP) and Bioluminescence Detection — the 3M™ Molecular Detection System is a fast, accurate, easy-to-use and affordable solution.
The 3M™ Molecular Detection System uses Loop-Mediated Isothermal Amplification (LAMP) technology, which is robust, efficient, sensitive and specific. 3M™ Molecular Detection Assays 2 are set up to allow flexible configurations, including traditional microbiological controls and adjacent laboratory process controls. By utilizing molecular microbiology for pathogen detection, LAMP amplification technology gives you more control over your testing process.
In comparison, Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) technology, commonly used in DNA-based pathogen detection, uses Internal Amplification Control because of its own limitations and susceptibility to inhibition from sample matrices, which can lead to false negative results.
Heat and cool the lysis tubes. Add the sample lysate to the reagent tubes.
Press start, load the instrument and walk away. Monitor real-time presumptive results as pathogen DNA is detected.
