RapidScan™ detects foodborne pathogens faster than any other testing solution.
ProteoSense’s handheld testing system, RapidScan™ offers rapid and accurate test results on key food-borne pathogens in time-critical and remote applications.
This unique platform has the capability to accurately detect food-borne pathogens, including E. coli, Salmonella, Listeria, and Campylobacter The system is designed to be durable for use in field environments by non-technical personnel and delivers single or multiplex-target testing.
With ProteoSense, real time data enables process efficiency. This technology eliminates the need for enrichment time and requires few additional steps or additional equipment.
Growers, packers, processors, shippers, and wholesalers in the food industry can test produce or meat products for pathogens and get immediate results without having to send samples to a lab and wait three or four days for results.
This breakthrough, on-demand technology will improve compliance with the new requirements of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), reduce costs, and minimize food recalls.
Companies select samples for testing at multiple stages of the supply chain: in the field, from cartons at shipping points, in packaging facilities, and so on.
There are multiple testing alternatives in the marketplace, but they all take 2-3 or more (sometimes many more) days to get results.
In the meantime, food loses freshness, shelf life is shortened and (most worrisome) there is considerable opportunity for contaminated food to get into the supply chain before the test results are known.
That creates recalls, brand damage, expenses, and sick people.
