Invisible Sentinel Inc., a life sciences company that develops rapid diagnostics for the detection of foodborne pathogens, has announced that its rapid diagnostic for the detection of Campylobacter jejuni and Campylobacter coli in poultry has received Performance Tested Methods accreditation from the Association of Analytical Communities (AOAC). The AOAC is a global standardization organization that validates analytical test methods for the food industry. The AOAC Performance Tested Methods designation is recognized by the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture (USDA) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), as well as numerous global regulatory agencies.
“This approval marks a tremendous milestone for Invisible Sentinel and introduces our first-in-class pathogen detection system to the food industry. The company’s Veriflow Campylobacter Assay is a rapid, molecular-based detection system designed to provide easy-to-interpret results,” said Ben Pascal, Co-founder and CEO of Invisible Sentinel.
Invisible Sentinel’s Veriflow is a molecular detection system and is the first hand-held molecular diagnostic to be approved by the AOAC for the detection of foodborne pathogens.
