Reliable data on the sources of Listeria monocytogenes contamination in cold-smoked fish processing are crucial in designing effective intervention strategies. Environmental samples (n = 512) and raw fish samples (n = 315) from two smoked fish processing facilities were screened for L. monocytogenes, and all isolates were subtyped by automated ribotyping to(More)
Two commercial polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based Listeria detection systems, the BAX for Screening/Listeria monocytogenes and the BAX for Screening/Genus Listeria, and a culture-based detection system, the Biosynth L. monocytogenes Detection System (LMDS), were evaluated for their ability to detect L. monocytogenes and Listeria spp. in raw ingredients(More)
Electrospray mass spectrometry (ES/MS) and matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry (MALDI/TOF/MS) were used to provide mass spectra from seven elapid snake venoms. Spectral interpretation was much simpler for MALDI/TOF/MS. ES/MS proved more useful for the provision of molecular weight data for very closely related(More)
