tive bacterial identification technology to the food safety market,” said Ann Merrifield, President and CEO of PathoGenetix.

Food companies and government agencies conduct regular food safety testing on raw materials, production facilities and finished products, to ensure food quality and detect potentially dangerous organisms like Salmonella, Listeria or E. coli in food imports and food products. At the same time, government agencies and public health labs track pathogens that are making people sick during outbreaks. When a pathogen is detected in a food production facility, or is affecting people in multiple locations or states, an investigation is undertaken to identify the organism and trace it back to its source.

Current microbial typing systems require time-consuming sample preparation to culture and isolate bacteria, followed by complex protocols that often produce inconsistent results even when run by the most skilled operators. Genome Sequence Scanning is a breakthrough in rapid bacterial identification and typing that offers new levels of speed, automation and accuracy for food safety testing and public health investigations of foodborne pathogen outbreaks. Because GSS works directly from complex samples, it can provide strain-level identification in just four hours, days sooner than other methods.

“PathoGenetix’s Genome Sequence Scanning is a breakthrough identification technology for food companies and government agencies working to ensure food safety,” said Dr. Czajka. “Rapid, accurate and cost-effective identification and strain typing of foodborne pathogens allows for better source tracking and fa
