After an internal peer review, the USDA selected SnapDNA as the preferred platform for next generation food safety testing. The company was awarded a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement with the USDA to develop rapid, highly specific, foodborne pathogens tests for Salmonella, Listeria, E. Coli, Campylobacter, Norovirus and Hepatitis. DNA testing is the fastest growing segment of the more than 1 Billion food safety tests per year. The number of food safety tests are expected to increase significantly due to new industry-sponsored legislation requiring stricter controls and, starting next year, pathogen testing of all imported food. SnapDNA is uniquely positioned to deliver the fastest and most accurate food pathogen tests and become the leading solution for food safety testing.
