PolySkope Labs Announces AOAC PTM Submission of the World's First Comprehensive Multiplex Pathogen Detection Method for Food Safety Industry
Date:3/7/2017

OKLAHOMA CITY, March 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- PolySkope Labs, a company that develops novel multiplex food safety assays, announced today they have submitted for regulatory approval the world's first comprehensive multiplex pathogen detection method. PolySkope Labs has applied for AOAC Performance Tested Method (PTM) status for the PolySkope 1.0 Pathogen Detection Method in a variety of matrices. PolySkope 1.0 is the first comprehensive and modular multiplex RT-PCR pathogen detection method for the most common foodborne pathogens. The Company anticipates launch of PolySkope 1.0 in Q3-2017.

PolySkope's CSO, Michael Centola, stated "We're thrilled to announce the regulatory submission and upcoming launch of the first true multiplex method in food safety. Our passion is translating our team's expertise in multiplex diagnostic assay development from the clinical space into food safety applications." "PolySkope 1.0 will reduce the cost, materials and complexity needed to make food safer."

In an industry first, PolySkope 1.0 simultaneously detects Shiga Toxin E. coli, Salmonella spp. and Listeria monocytogenes in a single multiplex, modular RT-PCR reaction, using a single, overnight enrichment. PolySkope's revolutionary Multiplex Enrichment Media (PMEM) allows simultaneous enrichment of all organisms in the same bag. End users can detect 1, 2 or 3 pathogens by selection on the instrument; the protocol and sample prep are identical.

PolySkope 1.0 provides enormous savings for end-users by reducing up to 3-fold the media, reagents, equipment, technician labor, equipment, protocol complexity and regulatory burden for pathogen testing. This provides a streamlined and simplified workflow essential to high-throughput food safety labs.

PolySkope has selected the latest ThermoFisher/ABI QuantStudio5 instrument as its preferred platform at launch. This instrument is optimized for multiplexes and allows for secure local and remote (cloud) data storage. It also allows both remote run and analysis for use in satellite labs. Launch of PolySkope 1.0 is slated for Q3-2017.

About PolySkope Labs
PolySkope was founded in 2011 by an experienced group of scientists with proven track records of developing multiplex diagnostic assays in the clinical space (Crescendo, Intergenetics). Their singular goal is translating multiplex methods into food safety. PolySkope 1.0 represents a starting point for their revolutionizing of food safety testing. AOAC PTM status and U.S. launch are expected in Q3-2017, with availability in Europe and Asia scheduled for Q2 2018.
