Last weekend, the best and the brightest in food safety gathered in Portland, Oregon for the International Association for Food Protection Annual Meeting. IAFP brings together food safety and production specialists from all over the world to talk about the latest technological advances and topics of concern in the food safety industry. In addition to the business and technical sessions, we host an annual breakfast panel to explore the tough topics. It is always a fun and interesting event and this year was no exception. This year's panelist brought perspectives from regulatory, academia, retail and wholesale. David Acheson of The Acheson Group, Craig Wilson from Costco, Indaue Mello from Coca-Cola, and Professor Martin Wiedmann from Cornell shared their expertise and ideas along with an enthusiastic audience. Here's a quick recap:
Last month, the Sample6 DETECT/L listeria environmental assay was certified by the AOAC. DETECT/L is the first in-shift non-enrichment test that the AOAC has ever certified. To our customers, this is a critical milestone, required for the adoption of a new diagnostic. Our advisor, David Acheson of The Acheson Group, describes it as “the gold standard in validation for food safety diagnostics and indicates a high standard of product that users can have confidence in.”
Sample6 is proud to announce the recent launch of our new website. The new and improved version includes videos, industry and company-specific articles, a blog, and, of course, information on our products. The new website is not the only advancement happening at Sample6 lately. The company has experienced tremendous and rapid growth over recent years and months as we prepare for our first product launch.
