BAX® System SalQuant™

First Real-Time PCR Application for Quantification

Hygiena is pioneering diagnostics with the ability to quantify Salmonella on farm, throughout processing at critical control point, and at final product for faster release or diversions using BAX® Q7 and our BAX® System Real-Time Salmonella Assay.

This application can be utilized throughout the beef, pork, and poultry industries to provide the precise amount of Salmonella to ultimately reduce consumer food safety risks.

Quantification Data Applications


kbi live production

  • Vaccine efficacy
  • Pre-Harvest antibiotic/probiotic efficiency
  • Flock house sanitation/cleaning monitoring
  • Determination of slaughter order
  • Source tracking of high load animals for corrective actions at farm level



kbi processing

  • New and existing chemical and physical intervention evaluations
  • Biomapping of process locations to monitor intervention efficacy
  • Process control documentation support
  • Precise knowledge of Salmonella location and level of contamination
  • Tracking from incoming lots to final product



kbi final product

  • Make release decisions faster for ground products contaminated with 1-10 CFU/g or mL (SalLimits™ or SalQuant™)
  • Faster results to make diversion decisions
  • Determine the true meaning of Salmonella prevalence by applying quantitative values to the results
  • Provide support data for prevalence testing to reduce consumer risk when positive lots are released
