GENE-UP® Reagents

GENE-UP offers ready-to-use test kits for your most pressing food safety concerns. The simple workflow is the same with each test, minimizing training and improving efficiencies. Current test kits include:

  • Salmonella
  • E. coli O157:H7
  • Listeria spp.
  • Listeria monocytogenes
  • More kits will be available in the future

The Salmonella and E. coli O157:H7 assays have received AOAC Performance Tested MethodsSMcertification from the AOAC Research Institute (AOAC-RI):

  • Salmonella Certificate No. 061504
  • E. coli O157:H7 Certificate No. 061505

In addition to our test kits, GENE-UP has the flexibility to perform ceeramTOOLS™ kits for virus & parasite detection and simplex tests.

GENE-UP® Software

The GENE-UP solution is commercialized with two different software options:

  • Routine: to use GENE-UP tests for the detection of the pathogens of interest (Salmonella, E. coli O157:H7, Listeria spp., Listeria monocytogenes)
  • Open: to run the CeeramTools virus kits, to create your own tests and determine your own interpretation.

GENE-UP routine software

The GENE-UP routine software is used to:

  • Set up the plate map
  • Check the results

GENE UP routine software home page


The GENE-UP routine software has been designed to be accessible from any PC in the lab AND in the office!

  • You do not need to be at the bench to setup your plate map and to check your results
  • It can speed up your decision process

To give maximum flexibility, the GENE-UP routine software can be installed on your own PC! The software can be connected to your LIMS.
