Rapid CDIATM L. monocytogenes kits are intended for the qualitative detection of Listeria monocytogenes in food.
Listeria Monocytogenes is an environmental contaminant mainly transmitted to humans through food. Listeria monocytogenes is responsible for listeriosis, a disease with a high fatality rate in susceptible populations, including newborns, immunocompromised individuals, and the elderly, causing the highest mortality rate among foodborne illnesses. L. monocytogenes can be found in raw and processed foods. It has now become the target for much of the microbiological testing carried out by the food industry.
