A letter from a NEMIS customer

The importance of screening Listeria monocytogenes in a food production environment cannot be overstated. This bacterial pathogen poses risks to manufacturers, making it crucial to implement reliable and efficient pathogen screening systems. St. James Smokehouse, an esteemed producer of premium smoked salmon, recognizes the paramount importance of product safety. Since integrating the innovative N-LightTM Listeria monocytogenes screening solution, St. James Smokehouse has experienced remarkable improvements in product safety. 

Unreserved Recommendation for NEMIS and the N-LightTM System 

In our industry, the assurance of product safety is paramount. As a manufacturer operating under heightened regulatory scrutiny, we needed a reliable and effective system for rapid testing of Listeria monocytogenes. NEMIS and their N-LightTM system became our beacon in these challenging circumstances. 

Since implementing the N-LightTM system, we have seen a remarkable improvement in our ability to assure the safety of our products. This innovative system provides us with accurate test results within 24 hours, allowing us to maintain an uninterrupted supply chain and continue meeting the needs of our customers without compromise. 

The impact of the N-LightTM system extends beyond its impressive speed and accuracy. The system's ease of use and the exceptional support we have received from NEMIS has been invaluable. Regardless of the complexity or urgency of our inquiries, the NEMIS team has consistently provided swift and comprehensive assistance. Their flexibility in accommodating our ordering needs has also been greatly appreciated. 

The N-LightTM system has been a game-changer for us, transforming how we approach Listeria monocytogenes testing. We look forward to continued use of this system and eagerly anticipate introducing new test protocols. 

We also see great potential in expanding our collaboration with NEMIS. The quality of their N-LightTM system and the standard of their customer service suggest that their other testing solutions would also be highly beneficial to our operations.  

To sum it up, the N-LightTM system has been revolutionary for our factory. We wholeheartedly recommend NEMIS and the N-LightTM system to any organisation seeking a reliable, efficient, and user-friendly solution for Listeria monocytogenes testing.
