Data Merging and Updated Database for DuPont Nutrition & Health RiboPrinter® System
The RiboPrinter® Data Merging Workstation is a new option available from DuPont Nutrition & Health for advanced microbial tracking. Customers who use several RiboPrinter® systems in their labs can now combine records from each system into one integrated database for comprehensive comparison, grouping and identification of unknown bacteria. For regulated industries, a Data Merging Validation package of ready-made protocols is also available.
Additionally, DuPont Nutrition & Health has released an update to the RiboPrinter® system identification database, adding over 400 new RiboPrint patterns of critical interest to the pharmaceutical industry.
The RiboPrinter® system uses powerful genetic information to provide an automated genetic snapshot, or RiboPrint pattern, of any bacterium in less than eight hours. With over 6,400 patterns in the identification database, electronic data security and characterization below the species level, the RiboPrinter® system surpasses U.S. Food and Drug Association guidelines for preventing contamination and assuring consistency in aseptic processing.
In addition to the RiboPrinter® system, DuPont Nutrition & Health markets the award-winning BAX® detection system, an innovative DNA-based technology for screening food and environmental samples for pathogens or other organisms. The BAX® detection system provides polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assays to screen food and other samples for Salmonella, Listeria monocytogenes, Listeria spp., E. coli O157:H7 and Enterobacter sakazakii.
