Dr. Evan Chaney, manager of applications at Roka Bioscience, will be presenting a session at the International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE). The session will take place on January 27 at 1:30 in Hall B at the Tech Exchange.

The session is titled "Integrated Sample Preparation to Enable Reliable Salmonella enterica Detection in Difficult Poultry Matrices" and will discuss results from a comparative study evaluating Salmonella enterica detection platforms using ground poultry and carcass rinse data from five poultry producers. The results show the detection of Salmonella enterica in ground poultry and carcass rinse samples can be improved by utilizing a testing platform that includes an integrated target capture step when compared to PCR and culture confirmation. The presentation will also describe semi-quantitative threshold testing and how it can be applied to poultry operations. 

"I am looking forward to presenting our collaborative findings and discussing our current efforts to develop unique testing applications for the poultry industry" stated Dr. Chaney.

The IPPE, the world's largest annual poultry, feed and meat industry trade show, will be held January 27-29, at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta. The expo is hosted by the American Feed Industry Association, U.S. Poultry & Egg Association and the North American Meat Institute.
