Neogen Corporation has received a matrix extension for its Performance Tested Method Certification for its ANSR for Salmonella assay.
In addition to the original claims, the following matrices are now included in the approval: soy flour, cocoa powder, peanut butter, almonds, dried pasteurised egg and ice cream.
The ANSR system uses an innovative isothermal DNA amplification process to amplify DNA to detectable levels and fluorescent molecular beacon technology for detection of the pathogen target. Combined with ANSR’s single enrichment step, Neogen’s new pathogen detection method can provide DNA-definitive results for Salmonella in as little as ten hours from the time the sample is taken.
Unlike PCR-based methods, ANSR requires only a single reaction temperature, which completely eliminates the time consuming heating and cooling cycles of older methods.
