DuPont Diagnostics, a DuPont Nutrition & Health business, is introducing the DuPont™ BAX® System X5, a new PCR-based testing platform and the newest addition to the award-winning BAX® System family. The BAX® System X5 instrument and associated accessories, including the automated DuPont™ Thermal Block for sample preparation, offer the same fast, accurate and easy-to-use pathogen detection solution that customers have come to expect from the BAX® System method, but in a smaller lightweight construction to provide greater testing flexibility.

“Our goal in developing the BAX® System X5 platform is to bring the advanced, genetics-based PCR technology of the BAX® System method to customers who may not have a need for the full 96-sample capacity of the BAX® System Q7 instrument,” says Alain Minelli, DuPont Diagnostics marketing manager. “Now food companies, contract testing laboratories and government agencies can use the BAX® System X5 to perform reliable, accurate pathogen testing in a way that best suits their testing volume, laboratory space and financial requirements.”

Initially the BAX® System X5 platform will be available for testing a variety of food and environmental samples for Salmonella, E. coli O157:H7, Listeria species and L. monocytogenes. These BAX® System X5 PCR assays will provide next-day results for most sample types after a standard enrichment and about 3.5 hours of automated processing in the BAX® System X5 instrument. Further development is under way to expand the new platform to include additional PCR assays.
