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.
