Free trial of the BAX® System Q7*
For a limited period*, food laboratory customers in Europe can benefit from a free trial* of the DuPont Qualicon BAX® System Q7.
Ensuring that products are pathogen-free, quickly and accurately, is vital to food manufacturers and contract testing laboratories. PCR testing is rapidly becoming the gold standard in pathogen testing for its unrivalled sensitivity and speed. But if you thought PCR testing was too complicated, this free trial offer enables you to think again - the BAX® System Q7 is easy to use.
Sample preparation couldn’t be simpler, with no centrifugation or washing steps. All PCR reagents are tableted and preloaded, minimizing pipetting steps. Intuitive user interface software means test set up and reading couldn’t be easier.
The BAX® System allows food laboratories to quickly and accurately detect organisms in raw ingredients, finished products and environmental samples. The cycler/detector allows you to load your prepared samples and walk away. Interpreted results are clearly displayed on-screen, with raw data easily accessible.
Food testing laboratories around the world have made the BAX® system an integral part of their quality assurance systems due to its tremendous impact on their operations - from dramatically decreased false positives and minimized re-testing, to reduced employee training and faster product time to market. The speed and accuracy of DNA-based detection, including a license to perform PCR; the simplicity of a load-it and leave-it operation; the familiarity of a Microsoft™ Windows™ interface: The BAX® system combines all this, for smooth testing procedures at any stage in the processing pipeline.
Assays for the BAX® System Q7 include: Salmonella, Genus Listeria, Listeria monocytogenes, Escherichia coli O157:H7, Staphylococcus aureus, Campylobacter coli/jejuni/lari, E. sakazakii (Cronobacter), Vibrio cholerae/parahaemolyticus/vulnificus, yeast & mould and coming soon, BAX® Real-Time STEC screening assay and confirmation panels.
To see for yourself just how simple PCR can be, ask your local Oxoid representative about a free, no obligation, BAX® System trial today (*offer limited to 30 November 2011, terms and conditions apply, quote code OXP1).
