NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Life Technologies today said that the AOAC Research Institute has validated the firm's MicroSEQ Salmonella spp. Detection Kit.
The food industry standards organization validated the kit for use with 11 different food sample types, said Life Technologies, and for high- and low-throughput testing workflows. The kit is optimized for use on the Applied Biosystems 7500 Fast Real-Time PCR System and can detect Salmonella in less than 18 hours compared to several days with conventional methods.
Life Technologies said that the validation by AOAC "meets the stringent pathogen detection requirements of many companies and testing organizations responsible for safeguarding food supplies."
