The New Era of
The FDA announced a new era of food safety with tech-enabled traceability and smarter tools for prevention and response. See how our client Yakima Fruit & Cold Storage embraced new technologies to modernize and elevate their food safety program with the CERTUS System.
The CERTUS System
For In-House Food Pathogen Detection
The CERTUS System includes everything you need to perform fast, accurate, environmental monitoring in-house.
No need for bags, stomacher, centrifuge, incubator, pipettes or bio-safe labs.
Testing for pathogens is as easy as 1, 2, 3 with the CERTUS System. Simply collect your sample, insert into the Detection Unit, and the System does the rest!
Now anyone in your plant can perform environmental pathogen testing.
No specialized training is needed to use the CERTUS System. Simply collect your sample and insert into the Detection Unit following step-by-step directions on your Control Pad.
The Bio-Lock Sampling Swab secures the environment from accidental contamination and enables you to move testing onsite for significantly faster results and reduced costs with no need for a laboratory or complicated technical training.
The Bio-Lock Sampling Swabs are designed so that, once securely closed, forms a permanent seal that can’t reopen.
Need to run additional samples and boost your quality control program? It’s easy with the CERTUS System. Sample collection and preparation takes only minutes, and with real-time detection, results are available in as little as eight hours.
Robust performance and accuracy make the CERTUS System one of the safest pathogen detection systems around. In test performance accuracy, the CERTUS System rivals systems currently on the market that are much more complex, have longer prep times and require expensive laboratories and technicians.
The CERTUS System utilizes SERS nanoparticle technology for real-time detection.
With 8 hour swab-to-result, the CERTUS System provides testing results within one shift – empowering food processors with the timely information they need to keep their products moving and protect their brand from a recall.
Take control, take action and stay ahead. The CERTUS System comes equipped with complimentary facility management software. FSMA compliance has never been easier!
