Listeria monocytogenes assayListeria monocytogenes assay

3M Food Safety launches its new 3M Molecular Detection Assay Listeria monocytogenes, the fourth test available for its 3M Molecular Detection System.

In addition, users can test one to 96 samples per run and incorporate other assays in the same run using the same protocol. 3M Molecular Detection Assays use isothermal amplification of nucleic acid sequences, plus bioluminescence to detect the amplification. Presumptive positive results are delivered in real time, while negative results are displayed after the assay is completed.

pan coatingPan coating

LloydPans is introducing a new pan coating for its line of baking pans at the International Baking Industry Exposition (IBIE). The Silver-Kote coating is permanent, provides easy release for the life of the pan and does not require re-coating, according to the company. It’s applied to baking pans and sheets using a Type 2, or light coat anodizing, a process that fuses a ceramic-like shell directly onto the pan. The permanent, waterbased coating is toxin-free, preseasoned and provides for easier depanning, cleaning and release when used in combination with standard release aids.
