The 3M™ Enrichment Pouch with 225 mL UVM is a heavyweight,
puncture-resistant pouch, ideal for many sample preparation and
Designed to meet stringent laboratory testing needs, these
bags have the strength needed to endure sample preparation and
handling processes. Pre-measured with 225 mL of enrichment
broth, the pouch is ready to use with no mixing required. Just
add the sample, homogenize to mix, then place directly into the
incubator. The broth and pouch are decontaminated through gamma
irradiation to maintain organism viability and long shelf life.
The flat bottom allows the pouch to stand on its own and heavy
gage wire closure holds the bag open, allowing the technician to
work with both hands. Once the desired sample has been added,
the open top is folded over itself and the wire tie bent over
the fold to seal. The multi-layer pouch is strong enough to use
with a paddle blender to effectively mix the sample with the
enrichment solution. This product is made in the USA with
globally sourced materials and is ISO 9001:2008 certified for
quality assurance. It is intended for lab use only.
Listeria is a genus of bacteria comprised of ten
species and is present in a wide range of unprocessed foods,
soil, sewage, and river waste. UVM is used for the enrichment of
the Listeria bacterium, enabling rapid
detection in food and environmental samples. Listeriaspecies
grow over a pH range of 5.0 - 9.6, and can survive in food
products that have pH levels outside these constraints.
Successful identification of Listeria is
dependent upon isolation of the bacterium, biochemical
classification, and serological authentication.
