BAX® System PCR Assay for Cronobacter (E. sakazakii)

Detect Cronobacter (formerly known as E. sakazakii) in selected foods after overnight enrichment. The BAX® System PCR Assay for Cronobacter harnesses the power of the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) to detect this harmful bacteria and other microbes that are commonly found in food or other environmental samples. The BAX® system assay offers accuracy, reliability and convenience in an easy-to-use format that requires less formal training than other PCR-based systems. Customers worldwide have adopted the BAX® system, due to its dramatic impact--reducing false-positive results, minimizing the need to re-test, reducing employee training and accelerating the time to market.
