AOAC Approval for Veriflow® Product Line for Use by Food and Beverage Industries

PHILADELPHIA, PA–(Marketwired – Mar 24, 2014) – Invisible Sentinel Inc., a life-sciences company that develops rapid diagnostics for the detection of foodborne pathogens, announced today that its first-in-class rapid diagnostic for the detection of Salmonella species received certification from the Association of Analytical Communities (AOAC).

The Company’s Veriflow® Salmonella species assay (Veriflow® SS) has been approved to detect bacterial contamination by Salmonella in multiple 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.

The AOAC is a global standardization organization that validates analytical test methods for the food industry. The AOAC Performance Tested Methods(SM) designation is recognized by the US Department of Agriculture, the Food and Drug Administration, and global regulatory agencies.

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. READ MORE
