Environmental and surface microbiological control: swabs. Salmonella and listeria detection.
Proficiency Test Parameters
The samples submitted are two Swabs, wetted with 1mL of preservation medium, inoculated with different flora and load; in one of them, for Listeria monocytogenes detection and Listeria spp. and in the other for Salmonella spp. detection The type of sample submitted can be considered equivalent to that taken on a work surface, for example in an agri-food industry. The results will be issued as Detection/No detection in the submitted sample element.
The distribution of parameters, and thus the number or amount of sample containers may vary slightly from those shown in the original design, guaranteeing the necessary or equivalent amount for the test.
