Invisible Sentinel certification for Listeria Monocytogenes assay
Invisible Sentinel has moved a step closer in its bid to provide a complete solution of pathogen-detecting solutions after certification for its listeria assay.

The firm said it is aiming for a full solution from its Veriflow product line by Q4 this year after its rapid diagnostic for the detection of Listeria monocytogenes received certification from the Association of Analytical Communities (AOAC).

The assay has been approved for use in detecting bacterial contamination by L. monocytogenes in food types, including ready-to-eat foods, deli meat, and dairy products, and on food contact surfaces during preparation and packaging.

Currently in the AOAC review process are additional Veriflow assays to detect pan-Listeria species, pan-Salmonella species, and Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC).

"This approval demonstrates our progress in expanding the Veriflow product line to detect a growing list of foodborne pathogens​," said Ben Pascal, co-founder of Invisible Sentinel.

"Like other diagnostics in the Veriflow system, Veriflow Listeria monocytogenes (Veriflow LM) features accessibility and simplicity not typically associated with other molecular technologies."
