  • Salmonella is able to contaminate food at any point of the food process and from any contaminated source, which is why testing for this pathogen is critical. In 2016, FSIS issued new standards that it expects will prevent 50,000 illnesses per year, reinforcing the critical need for accurate and consistent testing for Salmonella. Conventional methods are a multi-step process and typically require 4-6 days to get results.

    The Salmonella Express System was the first 3M™ Petrifilm™ System for pathogen testing. Providing results in half the time with greater efficiency, longer shelf life, and less waste than traditional methods, the 3M™ Petrifilm™ Salmonella Express System features easy-to-interpret colony growth, giving you the ability to biochemically confirm colonies in four hours.

"We use the 3M™ Petrifilm™ Salmonella Express System for fishmeal product testing. The multi-step system is seamless for my lab technicians to integrate with their daily routine. The feature we most appreciate is the visibility to Salmonella colony growth on the 3M Petrifilm Salmonella Express Plate. Colony visibility transforms the obscure world of microbiology into a tangible reality and inspires our operators in raising the bar on feed-safety practices.."
