Food processors and associated laboratories can use the BAX® System as a quick and reliable method for detecting Enterobacter sakazakii (now recognized as Cronobacter) in
selected foods and environmental surfaces. This assay is designed to report yes/no results for Cronobacter at concentrations as low as 105 cfu/mL after enrichment. With a processing time of approximately 3.5 hours in the BAX® System Q7 instrument, the method returns results comparable to culture methods, but with a significantly faster time to result. BAX® Systems are designed for use by qualified lab personnel who follow standard microbiology laboratory practice, including the safe handling and disposal of potentially pathogenic materials.
