Hardy Diagnostics Teams Up with Crystal Diagnostics to Improve Food Safety Testing

Hardy Diagnostics, a manufacturer and distributor of medical devices for microbiological procedures, has formed a partnership with Crystal Diagnostics (CDx).

Hardy Diagnostics is now an authorized distributor of the CDx Xpress Reader, an instrument designed to ensure food safety. The CDx Xpress Reader is an AOAC-approved pathogen detection system for food and research laboratories. This technology saves food companies time, cuts costs and improves the reliability of their overall food testing protocols. Crystal Diagnostics’ technology saves time, money and potentially the wellness of consumers by increasing the efficiency and accuracy of beef and leafy produce testing.

"This strategic partnership with Crystal Diagnostics will bring their advanced technology and Hardy Diagnostics’ ‘Culture of Service’ to our mutual customers,” says Chris Catani, Hardy Diagnostics’ corporate vice president. “We are very excited about this new partnership.”

By partnering with Crystal Diagnostics, Hardy Diagnostics aims to further their mission by offering the CDx Xpress Reader to their customers, providing them with superior food safety testing technology.
