This study was conducted to evaluate the efficacy of the mini-VIDAS Listeria monocytogenes (LMO) system (BioMérieux Vitek, Inc., Missouri, USA) for detection of L. monocytogenes in environmental and fish samples from three Portuguese cold-smoking plants and from their fresh fish suppliers. Mini-VIDAS-LMO is a fully automated system that uses fluorescent ELFA (Enzyme Linked Fluorescent Assay) technology for detection of Listeria monocytogenes antigens in food. It can be a rapid screening method… CONTINUE READING
