Listeria Path-Chek®


Enhance your pathogen surveillance with Listeria Path-Chek®

There’s no doubt that microbiological environmental hygiene monitoring is a core part of any manufacturing practice in the food industry. However, food manufacturers and processors often rely on commercial labs to verify their environment. These expensive and timely lab reports can take days to achieve a final result and can hinder your production.

Listeria Path-Chek® is a fast, accurate, and easy-to-use swab method for the detection of Listeria on environmental surfaces. With a simple swab, you get the power to detect Listeria in-house and remove your reliance on external laboratories. At less than 85% of the cost of a NATA-accredited laboratory test, it provides both great results and great value.

The Listeria Path-Chek®:

  • Comes out on top in an industry trial by Dairy Farmers Lidcombe (now Lactalis)
  • Boasts a high sensitivity of 5 Listeria isolates per 100cm2
  • Is ISO: 18395:2004(E) compliant
  • Produces rapid results with 97% of Listeria detected at 24 hours and 100% at 48 hours.
  • Gives you the ability to analyse your environment, with results maintained and kept by you

Listeria Path-Chek® forms a fundamental component of a good manufacturing process and is integral to any HACCP plan.

Testing Process of Listeria Path-Chek®:

  • Bacteria are recovered from the surface of food manufacturing or processing equipment using a pre-moistened swab, which is capable of neutralising commonly employed detergents and sanitisers.
  • The sample swab is then transferred into an organism-specific media (swabs have a conveniently located breakpoint so that they can easily be broken off into the growth media).
  • Path-Chek® Listeria are incubated at 25°C for 24-48 hours
  • If the Listeria bacteria are present on the sample swabs, bacterial growth will cause the colour of the media to change from yellow to black.
