Premium

EnviroLogix said this week that its DNAble Detection Assay for Salmonella has been certified as a Performance Tested Method by the AOAC Research Institute in the categories of primary production samples, environmental samples for food or feed production, and pet food and animal feed.

EnviroLogix's DNAble platform uses proprietary isothermal amplification technology and one-step enrichment to isolate and amplify Salmonella bacteria from very crude samples with additional purification steps, the company said.

"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," Chris Southerland, vice president of sales and marketing for EnviroLogix, said in a statement.
