Abstract:
The AOAC Research Institute, the approval body for all U.S. food safety tests, has certified Vacci-Test's FoodChek™-E.Coli as a Performance TestedSM method for detecting E.coli O157 in raw ground beef.

Vacci-Test Receives U.S. Approval for FoodChek™-E.Coli Test

Calgary, Alberta, Canada | Posted on June 26th, 2009

This extremely rapid and accurate new test is seen as a technological breakthrough for meat-processors. This approval clears the way for FoodChek™-E.Coli to be sold as a certified food safety test in the United States and internationally.

Fifty times more sensitive than PCR methods, FoodChek™-E.Coli is revolutionizing the industry and setting the new standard for accuracy and speed in food safety testing. By utilizing magnetic nanotechnology and an inexpensive easy-to-use magnetic reader, FoodChek™-E.coli provides the most sensitive and quantitative result in a fraction of the time required by conventional testing.

Dr. Richard J. Flanagan, Chief Scientific Officer, said "We have now received confirmation that our state-of-the-art technology can easily be implemented in routine food safety testing. We also know that its extraordinary sensitivity will provide highly accurate results in much shorter testing times,enabling meat-processors to quickly and confidently release products into the marketplace with less likelihood of product recalls."
