AOAC-RI Approval for Invisible Sentinel Veriflow® Listeria Species Assay

Invisible Sentinel’s Veriflow®Listeria species assay (Veriflow®LS), has been approved by AOAC-RI for detection of bacterial contamination by Listeria species in various food types, including ready-to-eat foods, deli meat, and dairy products, and on various surfaces with which food is in contact during preparation and packaging. Nick Siciliano, co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Invisible Sentinel, commented: "This approval not only broadens our Veriflow® portfolio but also enables a far larger segment of the food and beverage industry to benefit from the advantages of our technology. The range of species detected by Veriflow®LS demonstrates the reach of this technology along with its convenience."

Ben Pascal, co-founder and Chief Business Officer of Invisible Sentinel, added: "Veriflow®LS has been highly rated by our clients during the field testing of this assay which we have conducted over the past year. Like other diagnostics in our growing Veriflow® product line, Veriflow®LS features accessibility and simplicity not typically associated with other molecular technologies."

With the certification of Veriflow®LS, Invisible Sentinel has now achieved AOAC approvals for three assays designed to protect against illness due to contaminated food. The Veriflow®Campylobacter assay (Veriflow® CA) and Veriflow®Listeria monocytogenes assay (Veriflow® LM) received approvals last year.

Invisible Sentinel anticipates AOAC approval of a fourth product in the Veriflow® product line, the Veriflow®Salmonella species assay (Veriflow® SS), in the coming weeks.
