DuPont assays receive certification
AFNOR Certification is an internationally recognized European system that validates food-testing methods according to the EN ISO 16140 protocol. The AFNOR validation mark certifies that a multi-phase validation study by approved expert laboratories demonstrated equivalent results between the alternative test method and the traditional standardized method. This certification meets all the requirements of European regulation 2073/2005 relating to microbiological criteria applicable to food.
“Our goal is to help food companies improve their productivity and profitability with fast, accurate diagnostic tests,” says Doris Engesser-Sudlow, EMEA business leader for DuPont Qualicon. “The AFNOR VALIDATION mark provides another level of highly credible assurance that they can use the BAX® system for quick, convenient and reliable results.”
The company also announced the approval of BAX™ system by ROSPOTEBNADZOR for use in Russia.
