RapidChek® SELECT™ Helps Egg Producers Meet New FDA Regulations

The new RapidChek® SELECT™ Salmonella Enteritidis testing system was designed in coordination with leading experts in egg safety. It is applicable to both egg and poultry industries. However, it will specifically help U.S. commercial egg producers comply with the new FDA regulation that requires them to test poultry houses and eggs for Salmonella enteritidis (SE).

The RapidChek SELECT system is an easy, accurate, flexible, and rapid food pathogen detection technology. It combines the simplicity of advanced immuno-based detection system with SDIX's proprietary, patented phage-based enrichment media to significantly enhance both the specificity and sensitivity of the test and to enable improved pathogen detection.

The system is designed to:

  • Make it easier to comply with the new FDA Rule- easy to learn and use, fast results, robust detection for a better overall picture of hen house cleanliness, layer health, and egg safety

  • Help minimize disruption to daily operations - high accuracy virtually eliminates false positives. Ease of use and speed to results reduce workflow impacts

  • Help minimize costs - reduces training, labor, operating costs. Reduced false positives decreases unneeded egg testing costs

The RapidChek® SELECT™ Salmonella Enteritidis system has been evaluated at several large egg producers and independent testing laboratories during development to ensure it meets customer needs. Significant validation work has already begun and the Company expects to submit the system to the FDA, AOAC RI, and NPIP for approval and certification during the second half of 2010.

The new testing system is comprised of the RapidChek® SELECT™ Salmonella Enteritidis detection system for screening environmental drag swags or pooled eggs and the RapidChek® CONFIRM™ Salmonella Enteritidis immunomagnetic separation system for confirmation.
