Poultry industry experts, Manpreet Singh, Ph.D. and Harshavardhan Thippareddi, Ph.D. from the Department of Poultry Science, College of Agricultural & Environmental Sciences University of Georgia, collaborated to create a best practice whitepaper to help poultry processors reduce food safety contamination risks. Turn best practice knowledge into action.
Take a comprehensive look at 3M molecular technology compared to alternatives like PCR. With the combination of 3M™ Molecular Detection Assay 2 - Campylobacter and 3M™ Molecular Detection Assay 2 - Salmonella, you can monitor poultry for both pathogens simultaneously in one easy-to-use, accurate process.
Read how you can use 3M™ Petrifilm™ Plates when testing with neutralizing Buffered Peptone Water (nBPW) during verification sampling. As more poultry processors use nBPW to align with USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) testing, information shows that 3M™ Petrifilm™ Plates provide the same results as traditional agar.
As the poultry industry grows, the measures of quality and the protocols to improve food safety grow with it. Two 3M sponsored webinars are available to help you take a holistic approach to quality and safety for poultry processing.
A partnership between 3M and Cornell University has led to the development of an Environmental Monitoring handbook. This resource for food processors and lab technicians can help prioritize both consumer safety and confidence as well as executive profit expectations.
Campylobacter is part of the natural gut microflora in chickens, turkeys, swine, cattle and sheep. It only takes 500 Campylobacter cells to cause infections in humans, making it an important pathogen test for food manufacturers.
Listeria monocytogenes, a Gram-positive bacterium, is often found in moist conditions, including soil, surface water and decaying vegetation. Listeria monocytogenes is the most infamous of the 17 known species in the Listeria genus.
Salmonella is a Gram-negative, rod-shaped bacterium that is one of several organisms in the Enterobacteriaceae family. Salmonella is the most commonly reported cause of foodborne illness today, making it one of the most important tests for food processors.
