The Hygiena InSite L. mono Glo is an easy-to-use, self-contained, environmental sampling and screening test for Listeria species and Listeria monocytogenes (L. mono). It is intended to be used for environmental monitoring in food processing environments after cleaning.
InSite L.mono Glo provides uses with qualitative results for low and high levels of Listeria in 24 to 48 hours. A colour change of the media from yellow/amber to grey/black is considered presumptive positive for Listeria species. Presumptive positive samples for Listeria species which exhibit green fluorescence under ultraviolet light indicate that the sample is presumptive positive for Listeria monocytogenes.
Easy-to-interpret colour results.
It doesn’t take a microbiologist to understand these results. When Listeria species is present in a sample, the liquid media changes colour from amber to black. If pathogenic Listeria, like L. mono, is present, the media will glow green when UV light is shined on it.
Delivers results in 24-48 hours
Self-contained reagent- no transfers minimizing the chance of contamination
The colour-changing device is easy to interpret
Large 2.5-inch foam swab for maximum sample pickup
Write-on swab label for easy sample identification
Presumptive positive results are available for the most common Listeria spp in as little as 24 hours at levels as low as 1-10 CFU/mL
Presumptive positive samples should be confirmed by an alternative method such as PCR, lateral flow, or traditional bacteriology methods. Any confirmatory results should be handled according to appropriate regulations.
Compared to UVM and BLEB, provides superior/equivalent recovery and faster detection of as low as 10-50 heat-injured Listeria monocytogenes/mL within ~24-48 hours of incubation.
12-month shelf life at refrigerated temperatures (2 – 8 °C)
Each device contains a chromogenic liquid media formulated with antibiotics, growth enhancers, and colour-changing compounds specific to Listeria plus fluorescent compounds specific to Listeria monocytogenes. The two-step test changes colour in the presence of Listeria species, while illumination with UV light reveals the presence of L. mono.
This all-in-one test utilizes a large foam sampler for maximum sample collection that eliminates the need for additional sponges, diluents, bags, and pipettes. The only equipment you’ll need is an incubator.
