PathogenDx’s New Rapid, Single Test Detects Salmonella and 13 Serotypes in Poultry as Foodborne Illness Remains a Significant Threat to Public Health in the US

Serotypes Responsible for the Vast Majority of All Harmful Salmonella Infections Are Rapidly Identified in One Efficient Test – in One Lab Shift

At a time when foodborne illness remains a significant threat to public health in the US, PathogenDx, a leader in next-generation microarray technology for better health and safety, announced the launch of SeroX, a new rapid, single test that detects Salmonella and 13 serotypes in a single shift to support the food industry’s poultry sector.

“Salmonella outbreaks are a huge issue facing poultry producers, particularly when you look at the astronomical risk and costs associated with an outbreak,” said PathogenDx Co-founder and CEO Milan Patel. “For every confirmed case of Salmonella, another 30 go undetected. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (“CDC”) estimates that each year one in six Americans – or 48 million people – get sick, 128,000 are hospitalized and 3,000 die of foodborne diseases. To make matters worse, food contaminated with Salmonella usually looks, tastes and smells normal. That’s why next-gen tests like SeroX are critical to preventing infection and minimizing this threat to public health in the US.”

Patel added,” With SeroX there is no need for qPCR, NGS testing or both. SeroX delivers advanced gene detection of Salmonella and 13 serotypes from primary enrichment, and ensures an easier, simplified workflow and cost savings that poultry producers require to optimize production and food safety. SeroX results are also ready in a single-shift and deliver the lowest cost per sample when compared to sequence and antisera based serotyping methods.”

PathogenDx’s SeroX Assays includes the Company’s patented Dynamic Dimensional Detection (“D3 Array™”) technology, which is comprised of up to 108 probes – in triplicate, in a single well – to deliver a new and innovative approach to multiplexed molecular testing. Amplified DNA binding is enabled easily across a flexible, open 3D cross-linked array architecture, which results in a more flexible, faster and lower cost test than qPCR or NGS technology. Additionally, SeroX rapidly detects the serotypes responsible for the vast majority of all harmful Salmonella infections in one efficient test, including:

Enteritidis
Typhimurium
Newport
Javiana
I 4,[5],12:i:- (Monophasic Typhimurium)
Heidelberg
Muenchen
Saintpaul
Montevideo
Infantis
