This study is designed to assess the performance of Fluxergy PCR Salmonella Assay with Salmonella serotypes. Specific serotypes were selected due to their clinical relevance. A total of 20 serotypes were tested on the Fluxergy platform.
Cross Reactivity of the Fluxergy Environmental Salmonella Test Kit was evaluated by wet-lab testing using the Fluxergy Analyzer. A panel of 23 microorganisms were tested at a concentration of 1X10^5 copies/mL. All organisms tested negative in triplicate, indicating no cross-over with non-Salmonella targets tested.
Limit of Detection (LOD)
Salmonella spp. was serially diluted in negative pooled environmental swab matrix down to 1CFU/mL. 1mL of 1CFU/mL was spiked into BD BBL™ Mycoflask™ Selenite Cystine Broth Prepared Media (BD 297711). Culture was incubated (GBiosciences Incubator Shaker overnight at 37 C for 16 hours.) The LOD of 1 CFU/mL was confirmed by detecting > 95% of 20 replicates tested.
Save cost with faster stall turnover
On-site testing allows for quick answers when dealing with suspect cases:
- ICU stalls (Prior to patient admit )
- Surgical suites (Post-colic surgery)
- Horse trailers (Post-travel for stress-induced shedding)
- Routine screening of probable practice locations
- Clinics or referral hospitals
- Ambulatory practices
- Veterinary teaching hospitals
