Rapid lateral flow test for the detection of bacterial infection. Identifies Salmonella infection in poultry in one hour and can prevent an isolated infection becoming an outbreak. Extent of infection can be quantified so that the appropriate measures can be applied.
Can detect small amounts of genetic material from individual Salmonella serovars.

The first SWIFTR biosensor is for the detection of Salmonella. The technology is being developed for the detection of other pathogens such as E.coli, Enterococcus, Campylobacter and Clostridium.

QUICK

SWIFTR reduces the
time it takes to identity
an infection to 1 hour

SIMPLE

SWIFTR can be used
without any special training
or facilities. Tests can be
carried out on the spot.

ACCURATE

SWIFTR is a molecular test
that uses advanced molecular
biology to identify the DNA of
the target pathogen.
