MiQLab for Food Safety
Accurate answers in less time. Process samples cost-effectively on-site, screen for common pathogens, and manage the risk of contamination with molecular testing.
Automate food safety testing needs for improved workflow and faster results.
LexaGene’s MiQLab™ for food safety testing allows food processors to automate and reduce the time-to-result for actionable insight to help avoid costly delays and reduce the risk of shipping contaminated product. MiQLab can detect multiple pathogens at once providing a rapid quantitative measurement of contamination.
The MiQLab system uses real-time polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) to simultaneously screen for up to 27 targets at once with high sensitivity and specificity, reporting results in ~1 hr.
MiQLab can be used to monitor the level of indicator species to verify effectiveness of cleaning processes. The system enables customized test panels to be incorporated.
LexaGene’s Vision for Food Safety
LexaGene is currently developing validated tests for Food Safety. Food safety PCR tests are currently supported by our Open-Access offering.
LexaGene aims to provide the easiest to use solution for highly multiplexed PCR testing in food processing plants. LexaGene’s technology can be used for environmental sampling as well as testing finished food goods. For finished goods testing, there is high demand for technology that can clear a product for shipping within a single day. LexaGene’s MiQLab is designed to meet this need.
LexaGene has not yet received AOAC certification.
