VIDAS Listeria monocytogenes (LMX) is an automated qualitative test for use on the VIDAS for the detection of Listeria monocytogenes in human food products and environmental samples using the ELFA technique (Enzyme Linked Fluorescent Assay).
Confirmation services also available.
Environmental: positive or negative
For 25g test
In Food Products: positive or negative/sample size (25g)
For 125g (Composite) test
In Food Products: positive or negative/sample size (125g)
Environmental: 1 swab/test
In Food Products: 500g
VIDAS Listeria monocytogenes Xpress (LMX) is an enzyme immunoassay for the detection of Listeria monocytogenes antigens using the ELFA method (Enzyme Linked Fluorescent Assay). Note that a percentage of all raw commodities may contain an inherent low level of these organisms.
Both test methods will provide accurate results. See the table below for a high-level test comparison.
|Assay||What does this test measure?||Test Advantage|
|Molecular Assay||Detects pathogens using target sections of DNA that are specific to that pathogen, making the assay more sensitive than the VIDAS.||Fewer false negatives and fewer false positives.|
|Immunoassay||Detects pathogens by having proteins bind to pathogen-specific receptors.||More cost effective.|
