Free Trial of the BAX® System Q7 for Food Laboratories in Europe

Thermo Fisher Scientific are offering a free trial of the DuPont Qualicon BAX® System Q7 for food laboratory customers in Europe.

Ensuring that products are pathogen-free quickly and accurately is vital to food manufacturers and contract testing laboratories. PCR testing is rapidly becoming the gold standard in pathogen testing for its unrivalled sensitivity and speed. But if you thought PCR testing was too complicated, this free trial offer enables you to think again - try the BAX® System Q7 is to see how easy it is to use. With no centrifugation or washing steps required, sample preparation is simple.

PCR reagents are tableted and preloaded to minimize pipetting steps. Intuitive user interface software means test set up and reading couldn't be easier.

The BAX® System allows food laboratories to quickly and accurately detect organisms in raw ingredients, finished products and environmental samples. The cycler/detector allows you to load your prepared samples and walk away. Interpreted results are clearly displayed on-screen, with raw data easily accessible.

Food testing laboratories around the world have made the BAX® system an integral part of their quality assurance systems due to its tremendous impact on their operations - from dramatically decreased false positives and minimized re-testing, to reduced employee training and faster product time to market. The speed and accuracy of DNA-based detection, including a license to perform PCR; the simplicity of a load-it and leave-it operation; the familiarity of a Microsoft™ Windows™ interface: The BAX® system combines all this, for smooth testing procedures at any stage in the processing pipeline.

Assays for the BAX® System Q7 include: Salmonella, Genus Listeria, Listeria monocytogenes, Escherichia coli O157:H7, Staphylococcus aureus, Campylobacter coli/jejuni/lari, E. sakazakii (Cronobacter), Vibrio cholerae/parahaemolyticus/vulnificus, yeast and mould and coming soon, BAX® Real-Time STEC screening assay and confirmation panels.

To see for yourself just how simple PCR can be, ask your local Oxoid representative about a free, no obligation, BAX® System trial today (*offer limited to 30 November 2011, terms and conditions apply, quote code OXP1).
