Microbial testing in the Nutraceutical industry poses unique challenges

Nutraceutical manufacturing is complex from many perspectives: natural-sourced ingredients, diverse raw materials, multi-faceted supply chain, intricacy of the final product, changing regulations and complicated distribution networks. These complexities along with increased consumer concerns about food safety demand heightened focus on quality and safety – from raw materials to finished goods.

Nutraceuticals require microbial detection tools designed for challenging matrices

To meet the demand for safe products in this market, new and innovative microbiological testing technologies are required. However, most rapid detection methods available today are inefficient or are not robust enough to provide accurate results in challenging matrices. Veriflow performs at the highest levels of accuracy in a wide range of matrices including common raw materials and probiotics supplements used in the production of Nutraceuticals.

Proven platform delivers accuracy, speed, and sensitivity

The Veriflow suite of food protection tools is powered by game-changing technology designed specifically for the Nutraceuticals industry, utilizing proven diagnostic principles for microbial detection in an accessible format for streamlined onsite testing. In particular, Invisible Sentinel has placed specific emphasis on partnering with Nutraceuticals processors. The robust platform performs at the highest levels of accuracy in even the most challenging Nutraceuticals matrices, with simplified sample preparation and user-friendly workflow. Veriflow technology is AOAC International Certified for foodborne pathogen detection and has been widely adopted by food manufacturers and global 3rd party testing labs.

Portfolio of products targeting microbes of concern for Nutraceutical manufacturers

Extensive testing was conducted on all Veriflow assays to demonstrate the sensitivity of each product. The Veriflow portfolio of microbial detection tests perform at the highest levels of accuracy with zero reported false positive or false negative results observed in validation studies. AOAC Performance Tested MethodsSM Program was utilized for verification of assay performance.
