Method Description

The Detection of Listeria monocytogenes (L. monocytogenes) uses real-time polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) for analysis by amplifying L. monocytogenes DNA, if present, for fast and accurate results. It is particularly crucial for food safety, allowing for efficient identification of L. monocytogenes contamination in diverse food samples, ensuring compliance with stringent regulatory standards.
