Real Time PCR for Food Safety

Strain Level ID from Complex Samples in 4 Hours

PathoGenetix, Inc., developer of Genome Sequence Scanning™ (GSS™) technology for rapid microorganism strain typing, will deliver the first commercial application of its proprietary technology in food safety testing, for availability in 2013.The automated benchtop GSS system will identify food pathogens to strain level, directly from complex mixtures such as food samples, in just four hours.

Genome Sequence Scanning is a breakthrough in microbial identification technology with significant advantages for food pathogen testing and outbreak tracking. GSS works directly from complex samples and provides results in just four hours- days faster than current identification methods. The strain-level information provided is comparable to pulsed field gel electrophoresis (PFGE), the current gold standard for food pathogen outbreak investigation. Yet GSS's automated platform and simplified protocol requires minimal training and ensures consistent, accurate results.
