Roka Bioscience Awarded AOAC-RI Certification for Atlas™ Salmonella Detection Assay
Date:3/22/2012

WARREN, N.J., March 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Roka Bioscience announced today that their Atlas Salmonella Detection Assay has received AOAC Performance Tested Methods(SM) certification from the AOAC Research Institute (AOAC-RI). The independent laboratory study was conducted by Silliker, Inc., as part of the AOAC-RI independent third-party validation process.

The Atlas Salmonella Detection Assay runs on the Atlas System, an innovative fully automated molecular instrument for the detection of pathogens in food and environmental samples. This instrument utilizes a simple three-step procedure—Enrich, Transfer, Automate—and is capable of processing over 300 samples in 8 hours. The system's continuous workflow and high throughput provides greater efficiency, flexibility, and dynamic scalability to meet the ever-increasing demands placed on food safety laboratories. Customer evaluations have demonstrated a reduction in direct labor costs with the Atlas System in side-by-side comparisons with leading competitive methods.

The initial menu for the Atlas System includes the Atlas Salmonella Detection Assay and the Atlas Listeria Detection Assay, which received AOAC-RI certification in January 2012. Additional assays are currently in development.

"AOAC-RI certification involves rigorous independent testing and reviews and is a critical performance-based validation," states Paul Thomas, CEO and President of Roka Bioscience. "Adding the Atlas Salmonella Assay to our menu of AOAC-RI-approved assays underscores our commitment to making the Atlas System and Atlas Detection Assays the ideal testing solution for food safety laboratories."
