PHILADELPHIA—Invisible Sentinel, Inc., achieved certification from the Association of Analytical Communities (AOAC) for its Veriflow® Salmonella species assay (Veriflow SS), which can detect bacterial contamination by Salmonella in multiple food types, such as ready-to-eat foods, deli meat and dairy products, and on various surfaces that food comes in contact with during preparation and packaging.
“Achieving additional AOAC certifications for the growing number of assays in our Veriflow product line remains a primary initiative as we focus on commercial growth and strive to reach a broader client base," said Nick Siciliano, chief executive officer and co-founder of Invisible Sentinel. "We’re excited to have built a comprehensive suite of novel and exceptional AOAC-approved pathogen diagnostics for the food and beverage industries."
With the certification of Veriflow SS, Invisible Sentinel has now achieved AOAC approvals for multiple assays designed to protect against illness due to contaminated food. The Veriflow Listeria species assay (Veriflow LS) was approved earlier this year, and the Veriflow Campylobacter assay (Veriflow CA) and Veriflow Listeria monocytogenes assay (Veriflow LM) received approvals last year. Invisible Sentinel anticipates AOAC approval of a fifth assay in the Veriflow product line, the Veriflow STEC assay (Veriflow STEC), later this year.
