AOAC-RI Certification for Roka Automated Listeria Assay
The Roka Listeria Detection Assay has received AOAC Performance Tested MethodSM certification from the AOAC Research Institute (AOAC-RI). The independent laboratory study testing was conducted by Silliker, Inc., as part of the AOAC-RI independent third-party evaluation and validation processes.
The Roka Listeria Detection Assay runs on the Atlas™ System, an innovative fully automated molecular instrument for the detection of food pathogens in food and environmental samples. This instrument utilizes a simple three-step procedure-Enrich, Transfer, Automate-and is capable of processing over 300 samples in 8 hours. The instrument's dynamic scalability and high throughput provides greater efficiency, flexibility, and freedom to meet the ever-increasing demands placed on food safety laboratories.
The initial menu for the Atlas System will be the Roka Listeria and Salmonella Detection Assays. Internal and external AOAC studies for the Roka Salmonella Detection Assay has been completed and submitted for AOAC Performance Tested Method Certification. Additional assays are currently in development.
