Invisible Sentinel’s rapid diagnostic test for the detection of Salmonella species has received certification from the Association of Analytical Communities (AOAC).

The Veriflow Salmonella species assay (Veriflow SS) has been approved to detect bacterial contamination in food types, including ready-to-eat foods, deli meat, and dairy products, and on surfaces with which food is in contact during preparation and packaging.

With the certification of Veriflow SS, Invisible Sentinel has now achieved AOAC approvals for assays designed to protect against illness due to contaminated food.

The Veriflow Listeria species assay (Veriflow LS) was approved earlier this year , and the Veriflow Campylobacter assay and Veriflow Listeria monocytogenes assay received approvals last year.

Invisible Sentinel anticipates AOAC approval of a fifth assay in the Veriflow product line, the Veriflow STEC assay, later this year.

Nick Siciliano, CEO and co-founder of Invisible Sentinel, said: "Achieving additional AOAC certifications for the growing number of assays in our Veriflow product line remains a primary initiative as we focus on commercial growth and strive to reach a broader client base.”
