bioMérieux Salmonella Test Gains Approval

bioMérieux has had its automated test for the detection of salmonella species granted Official Methods of Analysis (OMA) approval on food products and environmental samples.

The Vidas Up Salmonella (SPT) test received the backing from Association of Analytical Communities (AOAC) International, including approval for 375g samples.

AOAC, founded in 1884, is an independent, third-party, nongovernment association of international industry organisations, government agencies, research institutions, and individual scientists. The association is delivering international voluntary consensus standards, Official Methods of Analysis (OMA), Performance Tested Method (PTM) certification, laboratory proficiency testing programs, laboratory accreditation criteria, and scientific information and opportunities. The methods are used globally to promote trade and to facilitate public health and public safety.

Vidas Up Salmonella enables savings in media ancillary materials and labour time, while providing results in as little as 19 hours.
