Kit Description

Specific kit for the qualitative, rapid, and targeted detection of Campylobacter coli. food matrices.

sCampylobacter è un batterio che può causare nell’uomo una malattia denominata campilobatteriosi.

With over 250,000 cases reported each year in humans, this is the most frequently reported food-borne disease in the European Union.

La campilobatteriosi è una zoonosi, ossia una patologia o infezione che può essere trasmessa direttamente o indirettamente tra animali ed esseri umani. Le principali specie responsabili di malattia nell’uomo sono sCampylobacter jejuni, sCampylobacter coli e sCampylobacter lari.

Common symptoms include fever, diarrhea and abdominal cramps.

The main sources of infection are poultry meat, unpasteurized milk (and any cheese made from it), contaminated water e.g. unchlorinated water from streams, rivers and ponds, and ready-to-eat foods

However, the bacterium can also be found in other types of meat, in fish products and in vegetables.

La carne di pollame cruda è spesso contaminata da sCampylobacter perché il batterio può vivere anche nell’intestino di esemplari sani. Si riscontra anche in suini e bovini.

Sono disponibili tre distinti kit di indagine: uno per la ricerca specifica del sCampylobacters spp, l’altro per la determinazione del sCampylobacter jejuni  e l’ultimo per il sCampylobacter coli.

The kit comprises


For rapid DNA extraction and specific gene amplification with LAMP (LOOP-mediated isothermal amplification) technology; **

Badge (RFID)

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology that contains all the information pertinent to the kit, including the batch number and expiration date**

Tablet with ICGENE App

The kit is used with the ICGENE system, resulting in the real-time detection of Campylobacter coli in food samples tested.


Automatic interpretation of results

Il sistema permette l’nterpretazione automatica dei risultati, visualizzazione in  tempo reale e disponibilità online. Le scurve sigmoidi in corrispondenza dei campioni positivi (+) indicano la presenza di sCampylobacter coli. Le srette indicano che i campioni analizzati sono negativi (o) per sCampylobacter colis.
