Roka Bioscience announced today that its Atlas STEC EG2 Combo Detection Assay has received AOAC Performance Tested Methods certification from the AOAC Research Institute (AOAC-RI). The independent laboratory study was conducted by Silliker, Inc., as part of the AOAC-RI independent third-party validation process.
The Atlas STEC EG2 Combo Detection Assay is approved for the detection of E. coli O157:H7 and other non-O157:H7 Shiga toxin-producing E. coli (STEC). The assay requires only one transfer step and a single transfer tube for the detection of both E. coli O157:H7 and non-O157 STEC. The addition of the Atlas STEC EG2 Combo Assay provides a second E. coli screening option to Roka’s E. coli O157:H7 specific test as well as its assays for the detection of Listeria spp., Salmonella, and Listeria monocytogenes.
