SDIX To Introduce Two New Food Pathogen Testing Solutions At IAFP Annual Meeting

Stocks in this article: SDIX

SDIX™ (NASDAQ: SDIX), a leading supplier of rapid detection solutions to the $1 billion food pathogen testing market, today announced that the company is introducing two new food pathogen monitoring tools at the International Association of Food Protection (IAFP) Annual Meeting in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, taking place from July 31 through August 3.

As the next generation in environmental Listeria testing, SDIX will be introducing the RapidChek® Listeria F.A.S.T.™ test system – Fast Accurate Sensitive Technology. The RapidChek F.A.S.T. system provides a one-step detection of Listeria species from various environmental surfaces in as little as 24 hours. The simplified protocol and next-day results provide food processors with earlier product release, while maintaining highly accurate results.

To enable data management capability for the RapidChek platform, SDIX will also be introducing the SDIX RapidScan™ Data Management System. The RapidScan system is comprised of a reader and proprietary software that allows for the objective interpretation of RapidChek pathogen detection strips and the electronic integration of the results into laboratory information management systems (LIMS), eliminating operator interpretation and transcription errors.

Tim Lawruk, Food Safety Market Manager at SDIX, said, “The introduction of these new systems marks an important expansion of our Food Safety product portfolio. The addition of the SDIX RapidScan data management and LIMS integration capability to the RapidChek workflow will provide food testing laboratories with a cost-effective solution that enhances the simplicity and accuracy of our process monitoring approach. In addition, the introduction of the RapidChek Listeria F.A.S.T. system will provide food processors with the first true 24-hour test method for the detection of Listeria on environmental surfaces. The advantages of releasing product even 2-4 hours faster include lower storage requirements and extended product shelf-life, both of which provide important economic benefits. The RapidChek Listeria F.A.S.T. system will be a valuable tool as all federally and state inspected meat and poultry plants in the United States look to comply with the USDA-FSIS mandated ‘test and hold’ program for product being tested for pathogens.”

Added Klaus Lindpaintner, M.D., Chief Scientific Officer at SDIX, “As a leader in antibody development and antibody-based pathogen detection systems, SDIX continues to work towards expanding our product line to provide pathogen testing solutions to the industry that are simple to use, highly dependable, and economically attractive. We believe that our products are ideally suited to meet processors’ needs for high feasibility pathogen testing, thus allowing them to comply with regulatory requirements, while responsibly contributing to enhancing public health and safety.”
