Food processors and associated laboratories can use the BAX® System as a quick and reliable method for detecting Vibrio in a variety of foods. This real-time PCR
assay was designed to report yes/no results for three species, V. cholerae, V. parahaemolyticus and V. vulnificus at concentrations as low as 104 cfu/mL after enrichment. In addition to determining the presence/absence of Vibrio, this assay can be used with multiple dilutions of a single enrichment to perform MPN calculations. With a processing time of approximately 70
minutes 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.
