Assurance® GDS Cronobacter Tq II Assay

Rapid Cronobacter contamination testing

Qualitative molecular method for the detection of Cronobacter spp. in infant formula, infant cereals and environmental samples.

MicroVal Certification (in accordance with ISO 16140) Certificate No. 2017LR77

Advanced genetic detection

Developed with a faster enrichment time, the new Assurance® GDS Cronobacter II assay now has an enhanced workflow and improved sensitivity.

As with other Assurance® GDS assays, Cronobacter II utilizes the targeted isolation capabilities of PickPen® Immunomagnetic Separation (IMS) together with the specificity of DNA-based detection to provide reliable results.

Featuring: a harmonized enrichment for Cronobacter and Salmonella.


A harmonized enrichment for Cronobacter and Salmonella.

Improved cronobacter molecular detection workflow

The Assurance® GDS is an integrated solution for pathogen detection that is unparalleled in the industry. Based on the latest advancements in molecular technology and food microbiology, it is designed for performance and practicality. With this new Cronobacter II assay, all Assurance® GDS kits use the same disposables, tools, & Rotor-Gene® thermocycler minimizing confusion and streamlining workflow in the lab.

Cronobacter II: Total Time to Result: 22 h (10-25 g & Env), 26 h (26-375 g)

Harmonized enrichment for Salmonella & Cronobacter testing

All labs want to save space and costs. With a harmonized enrichment between Salmonella and Cronobacter, your lab can do just that. The enrichment timing also allows for increased overlap times between assays which aids workflow flexibility and reduces the potential for human error between protocols.
