Invisible Sentinel Veriflow Campy Q same-day test for Campylobacter

Tuesday, 06 September, 2016 | Supplied by: Australasian Medical & Scientific Ltd

Campylobacter is a pathogenic bacteria and one of the most common causes of food poisoning in Australia. Symptoms include diarrhoea, abdominal pain and fever that lasts up to two weeks. It is most commonly associated with contaminated poultry, water and unpasteurised dairy.

Current screening methods for Campylobacter rely on traditional microbiological techniques, which take up to three days and require microaerophilic conditions adding to the complexity of the test.

Veriflow Campy Q from Invisible Sentinel is the latest test available on the company’s molecular flow-based detection platform. The test requires only 10 min sample preparation time and provides quantitative Campylobacter species results in around 3 h. It has been validated for use on poultry carcass rinsates and detects down to 1–2 cfu per mL.

Minimal equipment is required and the test is user friendly, so it can be performed at any food processing site or laboratory.
