PolySkope One is the first ever AOAC-approved, USDA-listed, true multiplex method for the simultaneous detection of any or all common/routine foodborne pathogens including: E. coli O157:H7, Shiga Toxin E. coli, Salmonella spp., and Listeria monocytogenes (Listeria spp. target set also available).
PolySkope is designed to simplify and reduce the cost of pathogen testing using our revolutionary novel enrichment medium (PMEM) combined with tried-and-true qPCR chemistry, a proven commodity in food safety & clinical testing. PolySkope One is a flexible and modular multiplex; routine pathogens are detected individually or simultaneously (user selectable) with one enrichment and protocol.
All other food pathogen test kits require unique and separate enrichment media, different incubation temperatures, and unique plastics & reagents for each pathogen.
The PolySkope One multiplex results in a multi-fold simplification of workflow complexity and logistics, along with a reduction of of: lab footprint, labor, training, regulatory burden, error rate, material cost of testing, plastics & disposable waste, energy consumption, and more.
