Innovative Biosensors, Inc. Launches Ultra-Sensitive E.coli O157 Test
Innovative Biosensors, Inc. (IBI), a pioneering developer of rapid diagnostic technologies, have launched a rapid and ultra-sensitive test for the detection of E. coli O157:H7 contamination in foods.
IBI's E. coli O157:H7 detection system enables meat processors to test for the pathogen in less than five minutes. The system is based on CANARY, a biosensor technology developed at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and exclusively licensed to IBI.
The CANARY technology's speed and sensitivity is unmatched by any of the current detection technologies. The assay protocol is simple, requiring minimal training and easy-to-use instrumentation.
The E. coli O157:H7 detection system is the first in a series of upcoming IBI products for rapid pathogen detection. The new product should fill the industry need for a rapid but sensitive test for detecting E. coli O157:H7 contamination in foods.
