2017 Thermo Pathatrix Food Safety Tester
- EQUIPMENT DESCRIPTION
The Thermo Scientific Pathatrix Food Safety Tester brings you fully automated sample prep for testing complex matrices found in food, environment and biothreat samples. This sample processer targets organisms using paramagnetic particles to bind and concentrate complex matrices, either antibody coated or positively charged. This pathogen detection system is easy to use, and cost effective to run and can analyze large sample volumes, 10–60 mL, or pool up to 10 samples at once, and up to 150 samples per hour saving on downstream detection costs.
The Thermo Scientific Pathatrix Auto Instrument can get you results in as little as 15 minutes, cutting down on your overall time to reach a result. Labs that incorporate the auto system can see results in as little as 7-10 hours, which is great for checking for positive release of ground beef for E. coli O157:H7 using PCR, or more in-depth detection over 48 hours such as for routine Salmonella spp. screening of prepared foods. This sample processer is fully automated, and uses common protocols, so minimal training is needed, simply push the button and walk away. This highly effective auto system captures and concentrates and cleans samples to ensure a more reliable and accurate result in an overall reduced time. The Pathatrix is compatible with a wide range of detection technologies, including selective and chromogenic agar plates, colorimetric assays, ELISA and lateral flow and PCR both real-time and conventional.
