A wide variety of qPCR methods currently exist for Salmonella spp., Escherichia coli O157 and Listeria monocytogenes detection. These methods target several genes and use different detection chemistries, either in simplex or in multiplex formats. However, the majority of these methods have not been carefully validated, and the number of validated methods that use multiplex qPCR is even lower. The aim of the present study was to develop and validate a multiplex qPCR method from previously validated simplex qPCR primers and probes. A modified broth medium was selected and primary and secondary enrichment times were further optimized. Efficiency of the newly combined qPCR system was comprised between 91% and 108%, for simplex and multiplex analyses. A total of 152 food and environmental, natural and spiked samples, were analyzed for the evaluation of the method obtaining values above 91% that were reached for all the quality parameters analyzed. A very low limit of detection (5cfu/25g after enrichment) for simultaneous identification of these 3 pathogens was obtained.
