Why MagiCyte MB?
Time to Result
Traditional culture-based methods take several days to isolate and detect colonies, making the test inadequate in such cases as perishable foods
While alternative methods such as PCR have significantly reduced the time needed to detect the presence or absence of bacteria, current technologies for bacteria confirmation, identification and characterization still require bacterial isolates such as colonies, which take days to acquire
Traditional methods are very labor intensive and require well-trained personnel — the high labor cost and low throughput makes them uncompetitive in price-sensitive food pathogen testing applications.
Traditional methods require manual steps which run the risk of cross contamination, leading to false positive results and potentially presenting risks to human health and to the environment.
