Listeria Testing

If you manage a food or beverage facility, you want to make sure that your customers are not in danger of contracting Listeriosis. Listeriosis is a foodborne illness that results from eating food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. Listeriosis can be extremely dangerous, especially for pregnant women and the elderly.

Log10® performs complete testing for Listeria monocytogenes. We perform the two major Listeria testing methods: the Listeria species test — a more general indicator organisms test — and the specific Listeria monocytogenes test, in which we test for a particular strain of Listeria. We can test for and detect all major strains of Listeria in your specific food products and in your overall food processing environment, including:

  • L. monocytogenes, 25g, immunoassay

Why You Should Choose Log10® for Reliable Listeria Testing in Food and Food Processing Environments

The quality of Listeria testing for food is too important to be left up to chance. If you have never had a Listeria outbreak in your facility, it is critical to make sure that you do not. And if you have had one, it is vital to ensure that you have rid your facility of these bacteria.

Log10® is a biological level II (BSL2) testing laboratory with a reputation for fast and highly accurate pathogen testing results. We use highly experienced food scientists who perform state-of-the-art test methods validated and accredited by the Association of Official Analytical Chemists.

Food and beverage may be the industry where it is most critical to makes sure your facility stays contaminant-free. By contacting Log10® to do your Listeria testing, you can be confident that if we do not find Listeria in your food or your facility, it is safe from this terrible pathogen at the time of testing.
