PHILADELPHIAInvisible Sentinel, Inc., announced that its Veriflow® Listeria species assay (Veriflow® LS) rapid diagnostic has been approved by the Association of Analytical Communities (AOAC) to detect bacterial contamination by Listeria in various food types, including ready-to-eat foods, deli meat and dairy products, and on various surfaces with which food is in contact during preparation and packaging.
This approval not only broadens our Veriflow® portfolio but also enables a far larger segment of the food and beverage industry to benefit from the advantages of our technology. The range of species detected by Veriflow® LS demonstrates the reach of this technology along with its convenience," said Invisible Sentinel Co-founder and CEO Nick Siciliano.
With the certification of Veriflow® LS, Invisible Sentinel has now achieved AOAC approvals for three assays designed to protect against illness due to contaminated food. The Veriflow® Campylobacter assay (Veriflow® CA) and Veriflow® Listeria monocytogenes assay (Veriflow® LM) received approvals last year. The company anticipates AOAC approval of a fourth product in the Veriflow® product line, the Veriflow® Salmonella species assay (Veriflow® SS), in the coming weeks.
