PathoGenetix Hires Technology Development VP for Resolution Microbial Genotyping System
Date:6/18/2013

ve background and experience with commercializing bioanalytical instrumentation systems are a great match for our task of bringing the RESOLUTION System to market—first in food safety, and then to strategic follow-on opportunities as well,” said Ann Merrifield, President and CEO of PathoGenetix.

The RESOLUTION System is based on PathoGenetix’s proprietary Genome Sequence Scanning™ (GSS™) 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 such as enriched food samples—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 standard for pathogen identification.

“I am excited to join such a talented and dynamic team committed to serving the growing needs of the food safety industry. I look forward to leading PathoGenetix’s efforts to bring its breakthrough GSS technology to this market and to others in the future,” said Dr. Luckey.

Performance testing and submission to AOAC of the RESOLUTION instrument, assays kits and protocols is planned for 2014. PathoGenetix is a sustaining member of the International Association for Food Protection (IAFP) and will be displaying the RESOLUTION System at the 2013 IAFP Annual Meeting, July 28-31 in Charlotte, NC.
