  • Self-contained method. Protect against the chance of contamination in your plant
  • Four simple steps. Environmental testing made easy
  • Rapid
    • Listeria spp. positive results in 30 hours (Results cannot be considered negative until samples have been incubated for 48 hours)
    • Salmonella spp. positive results in 24 hours
  • Affordable – Big-savings compared to a commercial lab
  • The only equipment needed is an incubator


  • Product performance claims

    Listeria PDX-LIB

  • Sensitive – Detects as low as 1 – 10 CFU/mL (It is recommended that presumptive positives be confirmed by FDA/BAM or USDA protocols, such as streaking Modified Oxford Media)
  • Compared to other methods, such as Buffered Listeria Enrichment Broth Base (BLEB) and UVMModified Listeria Enrichment Broth, LIB provides superior or equivalent recovery and faster detection of as low as 10-50 heat injured L. monocytogenes / mL within ~24-30 hours of incubation
  • Provides higher level of selectivity and sensitivity for heat injured L. monocytogenes under binary competition conditions compared to BLEB and UVM media
  • Comparable results to USDA methods (2% false negative; 1% false positive in real environmental samples)


  • Salmonella PDX-SIB

  • Contains selective agents to prevent growth of competitive microflora while providing nutrients for growth of the resistant Salmonella species
  • Sensitive – 98.5% sensitivity with 95% specificity (It is recommended that presumptive positives be confirmed by FDA/BAM or USDA protocols, or PCR for confirmation)
  • Ships next day air
Note: Refrigerate media – 6 month shelf life from date of manufacture
