BIOTECON Diagnostics receives MicroVal approval for the foodproof® Enterobacteriaceae plus E. sakazakii (Cronobacter spp.) Detection Kit


BIOTECON Diagnostics has received a new approval from MicroVal for the foodproof® Enterobacteriaceae plus E. sakazakii (Cronobacter spp.) Detection Kit. The foodproof® RoboPrep+ Series is the first commercially available system for automated food sample preparation and subsequent PCR setup. It has been developed as a cost-effective tool for food pathogen testing, drastically reducing hands-on time and increasing lab efficiency. The largest platform, the foodproof® RoboPrep+ 150-8, allows the simultaneous preparation of 96 samples in just 2 hours and 20 minutes (2 hours 40 minutes including PCR setup). No manual handling steps are necessary other than the loading of samples and consumables. Automated sample preparation is performed using the foodproof® Magnetic Preparation Kit I. The kit's magnetic bead technology isolates highly purified DNA from liquid sample enrichments, while minimizing inhibiting matrix influences. BIOTECON Diagnostics also offers the AOAC and NordVal validated Salmonella Detection Kit. The kit detects down to 1-10 cells per 25 g sample and provides an unmatched inclusivity, showing no false-negative results when tested with more than 700 different Salmonella strains. Other platforms include kits for the detection of Brucella, Campylobacter, E. coli, Shigella and Listeria.
