PolySkope Labs receives AOAC Performance Tested Method (PTM) Approval for Multiplex Food Pathogen Testing System

The Polyskope 1.0 pathogen detection method utilizes Real Time PCR detection technology to detect the “Big Three” (Shiga Toxin Escherichia coli (STEC), Salmonella spp. and Listeria monocytogenes) foodborne pathogens responsible for the majority of foodborne illness and outbreaks. The system detects simultaneous any, or all three, of the major pathogens in a single overnight enrichment. Resulting in a 3-fold reduction in labor, media/reagent costs, regulatory burden, sample prep, media prep, laboratory space required, disposables used, and equipment required while still delivering results in 24 hours. PolySkope’s preferred platform is Thermo Fisher’s Applied QuantomStudio 5 96 well instrument. The assay just got AOAC PTM approval for the 3 assays. Currently approve matrices include: Ready-to-eat (RTE) turkey (25 g); Baby spinach (25g); raw ground beef (25g); and Stainless steel (4”x4” sponge). @ https://finance.yahoo.com/news/polyskope-labs-receives-aoac-performance-205200814.html
