with the Atlas Salmonella Detection Assay


Pathogen Detection in Dry Kibble

Differences in kibble product formulations can complicate traditional pathogen detection mepet-food.jpgthods, adding time and cost to the testing process. The purpose of this study was to validate the Atlas Salmonella Detection Assay for 375g kibble samples using a non-proprietary media with various sample-to-media ratios at 18-24 hour enrichment times.

Two Validation Studies were conducted for the Dry Kibble Matrix
