Portland, Maine (May 19, 2014)--EnviroLogix is pleased to announce that its DNAble Detection Assay for Salmonella has been certified as a Performance Tested MethodSM (#041404) by the AOAC Research Institute in the following AOAC categories: primary production samples, environmental samples for food or feed production, and pet food and animal feed.
EnviroLogix’ patent-pending DNAble platform uses groundbreaking chemistry to deliver rapid, accurate, and precise test results compared to more traditional molecular test methods, such as PCR and culture.
“DNAble's proprietary isothermal technology is a real game-changer. It eliminates the time-consuming thermocycling step of traditional PCR systems while providing comparable performance,” explains Jennine Cannizzo, Director of Molecular Diagnostics. “One-step enrichment, enabled by extremely robust chemistry, isolates and amplifies Salmonella bacteria in very crude samples without additional purification steps. This directly translates to a significant cost and time savings for the end user.
“Partnering with customers to provide the best diagnostic assays for the agricultural industry, feed and pet food markets is our goal,” continues Chris Southerland, Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “With the addition of DNAble to our current Mycotoxin and GMO product offerings, our customers now have access to a more complete suite of Food and Feed screening solutions. We are committed to helping our industry partners prepare to meet the testing challenges of the future.”
