Veredus Laboratories Develops Lab-on-Chip Solution to Detect and Differentiate Several Food-Borne Pathogens, Including Escherichia coli (E. coli)

accurate identification of pathogens and adaptation to new challenges," said Anton Hofmeister, Group Vice-President and General Manager for ST's Microfluidic Division.

VereFoodborne will be a very powerful tool for health authorities and the food industry to carry out food safety surveillance as well as poisoning-outbreak investigation.

With this tool, health authorities can speed up their investigations of food-borne poisoning outbreaks. VereFoodborne's faster testing means the health authorities can eliminate 'suspects' faster and zero in on their 'culprit' pathogen more accurately. This would lead to faster containment and stop the spread of infection early on. Wrong 'suspects' in a poisoning outbreak investigation, which could be a shipment of farm produce, for example, can be released from quarantine faster, avoiding unnecessary costs and spoilage of goods.

Major food companies, on the other hand, vigorously test all their ingredients pre and post processing. The traditional method, which takes much longer to complete, means that perishable ingredients need to be held-up longer in storage while their shelf-life clock is ticking away. Smaller companies, which normally would depend on central labs, can also now carry out their own testing at a lower cost and shorter time if they use the VereFoodborne.

About VereFoodborne™

VereFoodborne lab-on-chip chip developed by Veredus Laboratories, a Singapore-based medical diagnostics company in conjunction with STMicroelectronics, a global leader in silicon chip design and manufacturing. It is a portable lab-on-chip application for rapid detection of all major food borne pathogens in a single test.  Unlike existing diagnostic methods, VereFoodborne is a break-through molecular diagnostic test that can detect pathogens with high accuracy and sensitivity, within two hours of providing genetic information on the infection that traditionally would take between days
