All-in-one Listeria, L. monocytogenes detection solution

27 April 2020

Hygiena has introduced the InSite L. mono Glo Environmental Surface Screening Test. InSite L. mono Glo which is an easy-to-use, self-contained, environmental sampling and screening test for Listeria species and Listeria monocytogenes (L. mono). 

The test is designed for use for environmental monitoring in food processing facilities after cleaning. Screening out negative samples quickly and easily provides a cost-effective way to increase surveillance, monitor hazards and control risks. 

Each device contains liquid media containing antibiotics, growth enhancers, and colour-changing compounds specific to Listeria plus fluorescent compounds specific to Listeria monocytogenes. Within 48 hours, the two-step test changes colour in the presence of Listeriaspecies, while illumination with UV light reveals L. monocytogenes if present. 

The InSite L. mono Glo test was certified under the AOAC-RI Performance Tested Method in late 2018. This certification verifies the claims that the test detects low levels of Listeria spp. and Listeria monocytogenes on stainless steel, ceramic and plastic surfaces.
