Rapid confirmation and serotyping based on DNA technology.

Molecular serotyping discriminates Salmonella serotypes through differences in their DNA sequence. Even non-typable isolates can be assigned to a serotype, thereby offering a greater discriminative power than conventional techniques.

Check & Trace Salmonella is a rapid genetic test based on a microarray platform. Each position on the microarray represents a specific DNA marker associated with a unique Salmonella target sequence. Spots only become visible if the DNA markers exactly match the corresponding DNA sequences of the Salmonella isolate. The combination of present and absent spots yields a pattern.

The Check & Trace Salmonella technology offers strong benefits:

  1. Results within one day.
  2. Simple workflow.
  3. Confirms all Salmonella and identifies over 300 serotypes.

Salmonella contamination found. Where does it come from?



Results within one day

  • Confirm Salmonella presence and serotype from a pure culture with a single test
  • Significantly decrease serotyping lead times
  • Enables quick tracing and elimination of the Salmonella source

Simple workflow

  • Uses equipment available in-house in most microbiology laboratories
  • Easy to implement routinely following a 2-day training course
  • Automated software-based interpretation of results
