RnA Assays b.v. (
Used in diagnostic laboratories, the new RnA multi-analyte Plex™ assay detects microbial and non-microbial contaminations simultaneously in a single animal-derived sample. The assay is applied at flock, herd or abattoir level to establish the contamination status of an animal population, and allows producers and resellers to predict the quality and assure the safety of final processed food products. RnA are working with Alaska to develop a rapid high-throughput version of the Plex™ assay system which provides multiple results in one sample run.
Based at the UK government’s Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl) at Porton Down, Alaska has exploited patented Adenylate Kinase (AK) Phage™ technology to develop the highly sensitive and specific fastrAK™ rapid microbiology system. This presents a significant technological advance to the global food processing industry sector by offering same-shift Time To Result (TTR) for E. coli 0157 and early-next-day results for Salmonella tests.
RnA launched its first MultiPlex
RnAssay™, Sal Plex™, in
June 2007 during the annual Med-Vet-Net in
