DuPont™ Lateral Flow System


The DuPont™ Lateral Flow System test is an immunoassay with built-in controls. It employs a unique combination of anti-Salmonella antibodies and a highly engineered colloidal gold conjugate coated on the surface of a membrane. The sample wicks up the test strip by capillary action. If Salmonella   are present in the sample, two red lines are formed.

Using the DuPont™ Lateral Flow System Salmonella Media reduces primary enrichment time to just 5 hours (can be extended to 24 hours to fit with your lab's work flow). Combined with standard secondary enrichment broth, results are available in 24 hours. You can also use the strips with standard primary enrichment broths for 48-hour results.  After enrichment, simply drop the test strip into an aliquot of sample broth, and read the results 10 minutes later. One control line is built into the lateral flow strip so you know the test has worked correctly. Two lines indicate a positive result. Test strips and media can be stored at room temperature. 


The DuPont™ Lateral Flow System Salmonella test is designed to detect Salmonella in a variety of foods, including raw meat, poultry, dairy products, processed meats and fresh produce. The test can reliably detect 1 cfu in 25 grams of sample.
