Invisible Sentinel, Inc., a Philadelphia-based global molecular solutions company has announced that its Veriflow technology platform for the detection of STEC organisms received certification from the Association of Analytical Communities (AOAC).

Veriflow® STEC utilizes the company's proprietary DNA Signature Capture Technology and recently commercialized Single Signal for Multiple Analytes technology to exclusively detect organisms that encode for STX 1 and/or 2 expression AND EAE expression. Actionable and accurate data on the presence of these virulence factors allows food producers to be confident about product release decisions and the overarching safety of their products.

With the certification of Veriflow® STEC, Invisible Sentinel has now achieved AOAC approvals for six assays designed to protect against illness due to foodborne pathogens including: Listeria species(Veriflow® LS), Listeria monocytogenes (Veriflow® LM), Salmonella species (Veriflow® SS), E. coli O157:H7 (Veriflow® 0157:H7), and Campylobacter species (Veriflow® CA).
