Development of a Simplified Assurance® GDS workflow for Detection of Salmonella in CocoaDevelopment of a Simplified Assurance® GDS workflow
for Detection of Salmonella in Cocoa

Sponsored By MilliporeSigma

Cocoa has antimicrobial properties and is a difficult matrix for the detection of Salmonella. Cocoa testing workflows are therefore quite cumbersome relative to other food matrices. Our goal was to create simple, robust methods for PCR-based detection of Salmonella in cocoa (AOAC PTM 050602). In this poster we describe two sample preparation workflows, each with their own advantages. The double IMS method is validation (AFNOR TRA 02/12-01/09) and offers large enrichment sampling volume. The second is a “direct dilution” method that offers the simplicity of only one immunocapture step. Download the poster now to learn more about these sample preparation workflows for Cocoa.
