Assurance® GDS employs an advanced Polymerase Chain Reaction or PCR-based pathogen screening method to test various pathogens in food and environmental samples. Assurance® GDS is an automated nucleic acid amplification system designed to provide the most accurate and reliable results – validated across a wide range of matrices. It is specifically developed to meet the daily rigors & requirements of food testing laboratories.
The Assurance® GDS genetic detection system combines the latest advancements in molecular detection technology and food microbiology to provide faster results with the increased accuracy required to meet today’s food and environmental testing challenges.
The Assurance® GDS system comprises three simple steps:
Learn how the many advancements in molecular detection technology can improve your lab’s efficiency and overall performance.
PickPen® IMS technology improves assay sensitivity and detection by concentrating only living targeted bacteria from enrichment broth independently with matrix variability. Results are obtained on the same day or next day, instead of following a multi-day full cultural test and confirmation, improving the time to result according to user’s requirements (e.g., saving time for perishable samples).
Confidently test for key foodborne pathogens, including Salmonella, Listeria spp., Listeria monocytogenes, Cronobacter, E. coli O157:H7 (EHEC), and Shiga toxin-producing E. coli (STEC) with our advanced genetic detection system.
We offer multiple formats, including options that can be fully automated using the Assurance® GDS PickPen® PipetMax® (PPMX) system.
Food pathogen testing by the Assurance® GDS system brings advances in speed, simplicity, specificity and sensitivity.
