Salmonella Test Receives AOAC Validation for New Food Groups
Strategic Diagnostics Inc., a leading provider of antibody products and analytical test kits for the food safety and water quality markets, have reported that the AOAC Research Institute has certified the company's RapidChek® for Salmonella test for a variety of food groups, including whole milk, orange juice, liquid eggs, raw cabbage and deli turkey. The test was previously validated for use in raw meat and poultry and earned the institute's Performance Tested SM certification. Expansion of the AOAC certification to include a variety of foods expands the application of the test across most food types.
Arthur A. Koch the company's President stated the "Meat and poultry processors like the speed and accuracy RapidChek® brings to their operations, and now companies processing many other foods can enjoy the same benefits. Our product also has several advantages over products currently in the market, including faster time-to-result, easier to read test strips and room temperature storage."
