Invisible Sentinel Awarded AOAC Approval for Veriflow™ Campylobacter Assay

Invisible Sentinel Inc., have announced that its first-in-class rapid diagnostic for the detection of Campylobacter jejuni and Campylobacter coli in poultry received Performance Tested Methods(SM) accreditation from the Association of Analytical Communities (AOAC). “This approval marks a tremendous milestone for Invisible Sentinel and introduces our first-in-class pathogen detection system to the food industry. The Company’s Veriflow™ Campylobacter Assay (Veriflow™ CA) is a rapid, molecular based detection system designed to provide easy-to-interpret results,” said Ben Pascal, co-founder and CEO of Invisible Sentinel.

Veriflow™ CA is a member of the patented, first-in-class Veriflow™ product line to detect common bacterial pathogens. Targetting a specific gene marker in Camplyobacter, the Veriflow™ can detect as few as 1000 CFU/ml of sample.

The assay uses a PCR detection method coupled with a vertical-flow-based assay. Veriflow™ CA requires only 24 hours of non-specialized incubation for maximum sensitivity and develops in 3 minutes post PCR amplification. Avoiding the drawbacks of real-time PCR and lateral-flow assays, Veriflow™ CA eliminates the need for cumbersome sample-preparation steps, gel electrophoresis, or fluorophore-based detection of target amplifications. Nor does Veriflow™ CA require complex data analysis.
