bioMérieux Improves Food Safety Testing Workflow with VIDAS® Heat and Go
Food industry professionals will now benefit from increased productivity for pathogen detection. bioMérieux, a world leader in industrial microbiology, is launching VIDAS® Heat and Go, a dry heating block used to heat samples undergoing pathogen testing in bioMérieuxs automated VIDAS and mini VIDAS® systems.
Food sample cultures are heated prior to testing to allow detection of the target organism. Prior to the VIDAS Heat and Go, a boiling water bath was typical protocol for heating food samples. Lab workers would manually label tubes and transfer samples in and out of the tubes and in and out of the boiling water bath. The VIDAS Heat and Go dry heating block streamlines this process by eliminating the manual steps of labeling and transferring the sample tubes.
