bioMérieux to exhibit at SupplySide West 2021

The company will be located at booth No.6634

bioMérieux, a developer of in vitro diagnostics, will exhibit at SupplySide West 2021, a trade show for health and nutrition industry professionals focused on dietary supplements, beverages, functional foods, personal care, and sports nutrition innovation. SupplySide West 2021 will take place at Mandalay Bay Resort And Casino in Las Vegas Oct. 25–28.

“We look forward to engaging with existing and new customers at SupplySide West and showcasing our innovative nutraceutical testing solutions,” said Ben Pascal, Chief Business Officer at Invisible Sentinel, a bioMérieux company. “There is an industry notion that rapid testing is not an acceptable equivalent to USP methods, and we’d like to show the industry how bioMérieux has revolutionised rapid testing methods, paving the way for the future of testing for nutraceuticals.”

At the event, the company will showcase its recently released Gene-Up Nutraplex Pro Assay, which was awarded AOAC Research Institute Performance Tested Methods approval for multiplex USP pathogen detection and PCR-based culture confirmation in nutraceutical products.

The multiplex assay simultaneously detects E. coli, Salmonella spp. and S. aureus from a single universal enrichment in 24 hours. According to the company, the assay meets the needs of USP <2022> across various nutraceutical matrices while improving overall efficiencies.

Other offerings include the automated enumeration Tempo system and immunoassay pathogen screening Vidas system, among others designed for testing functional foods and beverages as well as dietary, herbal and protein supplements and vitamins.

Attendees to the event will be able to meet the company’s team, which can help advise and provide education on its testing solutions for nutraceuticals.
