Instant-screening test for E. coli and Salmonella.
The test can alert food handlers to harmful levels of the pathogens within minutes--instead of the routine two to five days it takes to verify contamination from lab culture samples. The Salmonella strip detects 50 of the most common and deadliest strains. The E. coli strip detects the most common and deadliest strains, such as E. coli 103 and E. coli 0157:H7. A strip is submerged in a food sample; if the organism is present, the strip will change color.
The strips will cost approximately $3.50 each and will be sold through restaurant food vendors worldwide.
