University of Delaware Buys a Warnex Pathogen-Detection System to Identify Salmonella

NEW YORK, Nov. 7 (GenomeWeb News) - The University of Delaware's Lasher Laboratory has purchased a Warnex's Rapid Pathogen Detection System to detect the presence of salmonella in poultry, the company said today.

 

The detection system can processes samples in 12 to 48 hours and detect multiple pathogens simultaneously, according to Warnex.

 

Lasher Laboratory, part of the university's poultry health program, performs detection assays for diseases such as avian influenza, infectious bursal disease, infectious bronchitis, and Newcastle disease.

 

Financial details were not disclosed.
