Updated Software Improves Accuracy and Sensitivity of Food Security System
Building on its reputation for speed and accuracy in the food testing marketplace, Idaho Technology, Inc. today released software V3.0 for its R.A.P.I.D.® LT Food Security System.
The updated software incorporates a proprietary post-PCR melting procedure designed to increase the sensitivity of the R.A.P.I.D. ® LT Food Security System by using melting temperature and melting curves along with PCR amplification curves to determine the presence or absence of pathogens in a food or environmental sample. This additional feature provides users with increased confidence in the sample result.
This is the first food testing solution that provides both PCR and a melt curve analysis together with fast and reliable automated detection. Results are reported as a simple and clear 'Positive' or 'Negative.' Additionally, easy-to-use wizard-based protocols give users the ability to run custom assays on the system as well as the ability to run Idaho Technology bio-threat assays and food security assays on the same instrument and software simply by installing the appropriate wizards.
'Idaho Technology is pleased to bring another level of accuracy and sensitivity to our food security platform. We continue to bring easy, accurate and timely solutions to our food customers helping to aid in food security,' said Rachel Jones, Vice President Sales and Marketing.
