June 1, 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 Vibrio parahaemolyticus organisms in shellfish has completed validation.
Vibrio parahaemolyticus species present a significant health risk and causes acute illness following the consumption of contaminated shellfish. Current methods for detection are cumbersome and inefficient. Veriflow Vibrio is a rapid, sensitive, and easy-to-use method that is robust enough for use in various seafood matrices.
The assay is currently being implemented by several large seafood manufacturers and is available domestically through Invisible Sentinel and internationally via distribution partners.
