CDx System Gets AOAC-PTM for Rapid Screening of Listeria on Environmental Surfaces
The Crystal Diagnostics (CDx) Xpress System, has received AOAC-PTM Certifications for Listeria for rapid screening of low concentrations of Listeria monocytogenes on environmental surfaces such as stainless steel, plastic, and ceramic tile.
The CDx Xpress System combines proprietary liquid crystal technology with antibody-coated paramagnetic microspheres to selectively capture and detect food-borne pathogens faster than other commercial systems. Want to see how it works - visit www.crystaldiagnostics.com/technology/works/
CDx previously announced that it had been accredited by AOAC for detection of E. coli O157, Salmonella, and the “Big 6” STECs. According to CDx President and CEO Jim Bruce, “CDx is now ahead of schedule in expanding our portfolio of target pathogens and food types with our rapid and accurate liquid crystal biosensors. We will continue to add additional food-borne pathogens and food types in our offering of fast and reliable AOAC accredited tests.”
Dr. Matthew Taylor, Associate Professor of Food Microbiology, Texas A&M University, said that “Crystal Diagnostics is making significant inroads with the additional pathogen targets being added to its product line. My laboratory has recently instituted a funded study testing of beef samples utilizing the liquid crystal biosensors…results have been impressive.”
The Company has national distribution through Hardy Diagnostics and sales agreements with distributors in Central America and Australia.
