Solus Pathogen
Detection System

High throughput testing for food safety labs.

Increased laboratory power,
performance and profits.

Solus Pathogen Detection Systems offer food testing laboratories an easy to use, cost effective and efficient method for the dtection of Salmonella, Listeria and E.coli O157 in food and environmental samples.

Presented in an immunoassay format, Solus Pathogen tests are versatile and can be used manually or in conjunction with automation. Performing to high standards, our tests are robust, reliable and validated by AFNOR to ISO 16140.

• High Throughput

• Reduced Technician Processing Time

• Cost Efficient

• Small Footprint

Pathogen Testing Kits

The cornerstone of our pathogen testing system is our immunoassay, based on enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) and developed and manufactured specifically for the food safety testing environment.

Immunoassays utilize proprietary antibodies and production methods which have been optimized to deliver excellent performance. Post selective enrichment, our immunoassay delivers negative or presumptive positive results in two hours.

Immunoassay kits are available for identification of Salmonella, Listeria species and E.coli O157 in 96 and 480 well formats.

Dedicated Media

The media we provide and recommend has been shown over time to perform consistently and reliably with our pathogen ELISA tests.

Good, consistent quality is important for the sensitive detection of target organisms and also the control of false positive results due to overgrowth of any background flora.

Solus enrichment media is available for Salmonella and Listeria ELISA tests in a range of convenient formats.


As a self contained unit the Solus DS2 Automated Laboratory ELISA can process 192 samples in one run. The DS2 has a small footprint and fits discretely into any lab environment. The software takes your technician through the procedure one step at a time, with on-screen instructions guiding them through from loading of samples to seeing test results.

All of our laboratory ELISA’s can be fully automated, meaning you can walk away from the test once it is set up.

The DS2 enables increased traceability and security, allowing bar code sample ID entry and electronic transfer of results to LIMS.
