Roka Bioscience announced that its Atlas Listeria monocytogenes LmG2 Detection Assay (“Atlas LmG2 assay”) has received AOAC Performance Tested Methods 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 Atlas LmG2 assay is approved for the detection of Listeria monocytogenes from 25 g food samples and an environmental surface after a 24 hour enrichment. Additionally, the assay is approved for 125 g food samples utilizing a single, 44 hour enrichment step.
Combining our Atlas LmG2 assay with our existing Listeria spp. assay completes Roka’s Listeria testing solution and augments our product portfolio that now includes Listeria spp., Salmonella, E. coli O157:H7 and STEC.
