PathoGenetix Advances Commercialization of New RESOLUTION Microbial Genotyping System for Rapid Bacterial Serotyping and Strain Typing
Date:5/7/2013

Woburn, MA (PRWEB) May 07, 2013

PathoGenetix, Inc. announced today that it has received the first of six “alpha” prototypes for its new rapid bacterial serotyping and strain typing system, and has begun internal testing of the instrument performance to specifications. Called the RESOLUTION™ Microbial Genotyping System, the fully automated system includes the instrument, bioinformatics software and database, and pathogen-specific assays, and will be commercially available in 2014 for use in food safety testing and foodborne illness outbreak investigations.

The RESOLUTION System is based on PathoGenetix’s proprietary Genome Sequence Scanning technology, initially developed to detect bio-threat pathogens in environmental samples under a five-year, $50-million contract through the Department of Homeland Security. The breakthrough genotyping technology isolates and analyzes DNA direct from complex mixtures—without the need for a pure culture isolate—and provides molecular serotype and strain type information for target bacteria in just five hours. The strain type information provided by GSS is comparable in resolution to pulsed field gel electrophoresis (PFGE), the current gold standard for pathogen identification.

“We are thrilled to reach this milestone in making Genome Sequence Scanning a reality for the food industry and public health agencies,” said PathoGenetix CEO Ann Merrifield. “The RESOLUTION System will dramatically reduce decision-making and response time
