Company's Molecular Detection Assay for E. coli O157 (including H7) has been granted an NF Validation certification from AFNOR Certification for its ability to detect the bacteria in raw beef, fruit, vegetable and dairy products. The technology harnesses isothermal DNA amplification and bioluminescence detection technologies to target and amplify nucleic acid in enriched food and food process samples. Achieving NF Validation certification requires undergoing a multi-phased scientific review. The assay was comprehensively reviewed in accordance with the ISO 16140 standard by an expert independent laboratory and then further analyzed by 15 European laboratories to confirm reproducibility and repeatability.
