Roka Bioscience Awarded AOAC-RI Certification for Roka Listeria Detection Assay

WARREN, N.J., Jan. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Roka Bioscience announced today that their Roka Listeria Detection Assay has received AOAC Performance Tested Method(SM) certification from the AOAC Research Institute (AOAC-RI). The independent laboratory study testing was conducted by Silliker, Inc., as part of the AOAC-RI independent third-party evaluation and validation processes.

The Roka Listeria Detection Assay runs on the Atlas™ System, an innovative fully automated molecular instrument for the detection of food 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 instrument's dynamic scalability and high throughput provides greater efficiency, flexibility, and freedom to meet the ever-increasing demands placed on food safety laboratories.

The initial menu for the Atlas System will be the Roka Listeria and Salmonella Detection Assays. Internal and external AOAC studies for the Roka Salmonella Detection Assay has been completed and submitted for AOAC Performance Tested Method Certification. Additional assays are currently in development.

"AOAC-RI certification of the Roka Listeria Detection Assay was a critical step for us," stated Paul Thomas, CEO and President of Roka Bioscience.  "This certification is recognized worldwide as the ultimate performance-based validation in our industry. We can now say with even more certainty that this assay, together with the Atlas System, gives food safety laboratories an ideal testing solution. Accuracy, speed, ease of use, flexibility—with this system, laboratories can truly have it all."
