Precise, Powerful Molecular Pathogen Detection

To lessen the risk of costly recalls or brand-damaging headlines, food testing labs need fast, accurate and convenient tools for detecting the presence of pathogens in their raw ingredients, environmental samples and finished products. For decades, labs around the world have chosen the award-winning BAX® System as their preferred method for food safety testing.

With a robust list of both real-time and end-point assays globally validated for a wide variety of foods and environmental sample types, the BAX® System Q7 is sure to meet the demands of food processors across the entire supply chain.


Fast, accurate, easy to use.

Advanced DNA-based PCR technology provides rapid, reproducible results to help you make faster product release decisions with confidence.

The BAX® System X5 handles up to 32 samples using the same advanced PCR technology to accurately and reliably identify foodborne pathogens in raw ingredients, finished products, and environmental samples with a smaller lab footprint.

Lateral Flow System

Immunoassay alternative for routine pathogen screening.

Using a unique combination of antibodies and highly engineered colloidal gold conjugate coated on the surface of a membrane, the Hygiena Lateral Flow System yields pathogen screening results much faster than conventional, culture-based testing. Prepared sample wicks up the test strip by capillary action. Within 10 minutes, two red lines appear if the target pathogen is present. Otherwise, only the control line appears, which lets you know that the test has worked correctly. The antibody-based method offers optimized media and sensitive results with no capital investment and minimal training.


Automated molecular method for powerful microbial monitoring.

Enhance quality assurance by using the RiboPrinter® System to quickly and accurately identify and differentiate contaminating organisms. The RiboPrinter® System,  generates genetic, strain-level ‘fingerprints’ of bacteria and compares them against thousands of other patterns to identify contaminating organisms and how they entered your production environment. This critical information helps you design interventions for safety and quality that are highly targeted, effective and efficient.
