EnviroLogix has announced that its DNAble Detection Assay for Salmonella has been certified as a Performance Tested Method by the AOAC Research Institute in the following AOAC categories: primary production samples, environmental samples for food or feed production, and pet food and animal feed.

EnviroLogix’ patent-pending DNAble platform uses groundbreaking chemistry to deliver rapid, accurate, and precise test results compared to more traditional molecular test methods, such as PCR and culture.

EnviroLogix Molecular Diagnostics director Jennine Cannizzo said that DNAble’s proprietary isothermal technology is a real game-changer.

"It eliminates the time-consuming thermocycling step of traditional PCR systems while providing comparable performance," Cannizzo added.

"One-step enrichment, enabled by extremely robust chemistry, isolates and amplifies Salmonella bacteria in very crude samples without additional purification steps. This directly translates to a significant cost and time savings for the end user."

EnviroLogix sales and marketing vice president Chris Southerland said that with the addition of DNAble to the company’s current Mycotoxin and GMO product offerings, its customers now have access to a more complete suite of food and feed screening solutions.
