Invisible Sentinel Technology Continues to Transcend Industries with Veriflow Legionella Assay | Veriflow Legionella Validated for Environmental Screening & Water Testing
August 7, 2017 • Press Release
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania – Invisible Sentinel Inc., a Philadelphia-based global molecular solutions company announced today that its Veriflow technology platform for the detection of Legionella species has completed validation.
Legionella causes acute respiratory disease that can lead to hospitalization and death. The bacteria typically reside in water cooling towers, swimming pools, and ventilation systems, where it can aerosolize and become infectious. Schools, hospitals, hotels, and office buildings undergo regular monitoring to ensure that they are free of Legionella. However, traditional screening methods can take up to weeks to deliver results.
The increasing incidence of Legionella outbreaks, and improved awareness about preventive measures such as regular monitoring, have driven the need for faster and more accurate detection tools. Veriflow Legionella can provide accurate results from water and environmental systems within 5 hours from sample collection. This provides same-shift actionable results to end users that can empower near-immediate remediation of contamination.
The assay is currently available in a limited release to select partners. Interested parties should contact the Company for additional information. The assay is expected to be launched domestically and internationally later this year.
Invisible Sentinel has also developed a suite of detection tools for pathogen and spoilage organisms in food, wine, beer, and juice. Veriflow® Legionella and other assays are available directly from Invisible Sentinel. For ordering information or quotations, please call the Invisible Sentinel customer service team at 215-966-6118.
