Sample6 and IEH Laboratories & Consulting Group (IEH) jointly announced today that IEH is acquiring all assets related to the Sample6 DETECT platform.

This divestment allows Sample6 to focus exclusively on its groundbreaking and highly-regarded CONTROL food safety software. Sample6 aims to continue to develop the CONTROL product portfolio into the must-have mission-critical software suite in this space.

The Sample6 DETECT test system was developed as a solution to help food processors identify points of Listeria and Salmonella contamination on-site and in-shift to reduce food safety risks. IEH, through its wholly-owned subsidiary Phage Diagnostics, are focused on making the DETECT technology available in every corner of the food safety market. The addition of the DETECT system will further enhance the ability of IEH to provide a full range of testing capabilities to food-related industries.

“We’re delighted to have found a fantastic partner for the further commercialization of the Bioillumination technology and the DETECT platform in IEH,” says Sample6 Founder and CEO Dr. Michael Koeris. “IEH’s resources and reach will allow for a more rapid deployment of the groundbreaking in-shift, on-site technology, as well as the successful launch of the high-throughput platform into the central and 3rd party laboratory market worldwide.”
