IGEN Salmonella Test Approved By National Poultry Improvement Plan

IGEN announced that its PATHIGEN® Salmonella test method has been approved by the National Poultry Improvement Plan (NPIP), at its biennial meeting held May 30 - June 1 in San Antonio, TX.

The PATHIGEN test method utilizes IGEN’s proprietary ORIGEN® technology, and is the first rapid commercial method for identification of Salmonella ever approved by NPIP.

With this approval, PATHIGEN tests may be used to detect Salmonella contamination in live poultry.

NPIP support for approval of the PATHIGEN Salmonella test method was based upon results that showed equal or enhanced sensitivity when compared to conventional non-rapid methods.

The PATHIGEN method delivers results in approximately 48 hours offering the economic benefits of reduced testing time, labor and materials. Conventional, non-rapid methods involve incubation in petri dishes with results taking three to nine days.
