3M Molecular Detection S...
ST. PAUL, Minn. – July 24, 2012 – Today, 3M Food Safety announced that it receivedAOAC‐PTM Certification (#071202) for its new 3M Molecular Detection Assay forE. coli O157 (including H7) from the AOAC Research Institute’s Performance TestedMethodsSM Program. The certification gives food processors greater assurance insafeguarding against pathogenic E. coli, a causative agent of foodborne illnessresponsible for an estimated 73,000 cases annually in the U.S. and second only toSalmonella in the number of outbreaks.Introduced in December 2011, the 3M™ Molecular Detection System combines twoinnovative technologies – isothermal DNA amplification and bioluminescencedetection – to provide a fast and reliable method of pathogen detection in enrichedfood, feed and food process environmental samples. Determined to be equivalent tostandard FDA and USDA reference methods for the detection of E. coli O157,thisAOAC‐PTM certification validates 3M’s new molecular approach for pathogendetection.The PTM validation of E. coli O157 follows an earlier validation of the Salmonellaassay from the AOAC Research Institute, which bases certification of methods onindependent study results demonstrating that a given method meets its productperformance claims as expressed in the product package insert. For the 3MMolecular Detection Assay E. coli O157 method PTM study, artificially contaminatedsamples were enriched and evaluated by the 3M Molecular Detection System ascompared to the appropriate FDA or USDA FSIS reference method. Sample groupsevaluated included raw ground beef, bagged spinach and sprouts, and nostatistically significant differences were found in sample results between the 3MMolecular Detection Assay E. coli O157 (including H7) and reference methods.“We are very excited about this validation and what it means for the 3M MolecularDetection System,” said DeAnn Benesh, regulatory affairs specialist with 3M Food
