Environmental testing for Pathogens

3M™ Environmental Listeria KitBy controlling your environment, you can reduce risk of cross-contamination within your production areas. We offer an easy-to-use solution for direct detection of Listeria on site. The 3M™ Environmental Listeria Kit is a contained system that can help you assess Critical Control Points with results in 48 hours by a simple colour reaction.


3M™ Petrifilm Environmental Listeria PlatesThis can be done by using the swab-sampler inconjunction with Petrifilm to ascertain microbial contamination on surface. Petrifilm can also be used to assess air quality by pre-hydrating the plate and leaving exposed to the air.
