TRANSIA PLATE incorporates proven enzyme linked imunoassy “sandwich” technology for the detection of foodborne pathogens in both product and environmental samples. Highly specific antibodies coated to polystyrene microtiter plate wells capture and bind the target antigen, if present. A detection antibody linked to a conjugate enzyme is introduced to form an antibody/antigen/antibody sandwich. Finally, a substrate is added and converted by the conjugate enzyme to produce a color change indicating the presence of the target pathogen. The extensive AFNOR / ISO 16140 validations and built in positive and negative controls combine to provide users with the necessary confidence in results. The efficient 96-well format and available automation make TRANSIA PLATE an ideal solution for high volume testing operations.
