Application Note: Assurance® GDS Manual PickPen® vs. PIPETMAX for challenging food and environmental samples
23 January 2020

The BioControl® Assurance® GDS system is widely accepted for the detection of food pathogens. The proprietary Assurance® GDS PickPen® II device has been shown to be a very powerful tool for immunomagnetic separation (IMS) of pathogenic organisms from an entire range of food matrices. Preparation of samples for analysis by Assurance® GDS methods involves sample enrichment, reagent dispensing, IMS using the proprietary PickPen® device, and sample transfer steps.
