Simultaneous Identification of Select Microbial Pathogens

NanoLogix received notification at the end of July of results for two time and temperature related tests that have been performed by a renowned independent third-party lab. In the first test, NanoLogix Tryptic Soy Agar (TSA) petri plates packed in the company's proprietary FlatPacks reached the 2-year point for room-temperature (RT) storage. The final test results for culturing of bacillus anthracis Ames (Anthrax) on the two-year-old plates were superior to the results obtained with competitor's one-week-old TSA plates, with NanoLogix's TSA plates performing as the equivalent to freshly poured plates. NanoLogix has elected to end the study, as the supply of FlatPacks that were furnished to the third-party lab two years ago predicated upon an initial four- month test for the DOD has been exhausted. The company recently completed its own testing of FlatPack packaged TSA petri plates stored for 3 years in cold storage with E-coli 0157 H7 as the test bacteria and observed results similar to those of the third-party lab 2 year RT test for Anthrax. In a second test that was begun in June for determination of the stability of three different types of FlatPack-packaged agars under conditions conforming to MilSpec requirements for "Desert Hot" (to 60+ degrees Centigrade), the Flatpacks provided excellent agar protection and stability in simulated total power loss for periods of 24 hours, 7 days, and 30+ days, with culture results at all periods comparable to refrigerated and room temperature stored FlatPacks. The tests of NanoLogix FlatPacked plates were compared to plates furnished by competitors, with the competitors' plates performing adequately after 24 hours, but being completely desiccated and unusable by the 7-day point. A peer reviewed paper will be published either in 2014 or early 2015 detailing the actual studies with results and control data. The staff at NanoLogix are elated over the three sets of test results, as they demonstrate the unique product durability that NanoLogix is able to furnish to their clients.

Our up and coming event on May 20, 2014: N-Assay for GBS

“Decreased time for detection and quantification of virulent

August 18, 2013

Dr Jonathan Faro of the UTHSC at Houston presented two posters at the IDSOG meeting in Albuquerque showing the results of tests with NanoLogix BNF and new Multiwell N-Assay diagnostics. The N-Assay delivered 30 minute results for detection and identification of Group B Streptococcus (GBS) while the BNF provided detection, identification, and determination of sensitivity to clindamycin antibiotic in 6 - 6.5 hours. Both tests are significantly faster than the standard tests in use, which take 48-72 hours for the same results. The significance of the results and impact upon screening for GBS in pregnancies, and potentially in the elderly and immuno-compromised patients of all ages, is tremendous.

Third-Party Details on Tests of NanoLogix Petri "Flat Pack" Shelf-Life

April 24, 2012 -- In a statement from the independent testing lab:

“NNLX differentiated their product with unique packaging.  Deemed as “the flat-pack,” ten monoplates are arranged in a sturdy, honey-combed configuration as a single layer (i.e., plates were not stacked atop each other).  Also, the polymer wrapper bag was sealed with a vacuum, further enhancing the sturdiness of the packaging.  The other vendors typically stack the monoplates in quantities of ten, resulting in a cylindrical configuration.  Also, these cylindrical packs do not exhibit any form of vacuum seal.  As a result, heavy condensation can be an issue inside the monoplates themselves.  Also, vendors have had issues with monoplate breakage during the course of shipping.  The Petri-dish is made from polystyrene plastic and can be susceptible to damage if the shipping box is roughly handled.  None of the NNLX flat-packs were damaged or exhibited excess condensation.

The shelf-life test involved plating purified Bacillus anthracis Ames spores on TSA provided by a third party vendor and the use of the same dilutions to plate the spores onto NNLX TSA from flat-packs.  Colonies were enumerated after 18-24 hours of incubation at 37±2°C.  The quantitative values from the third party vendor were directly compared to those from the NNLX TSA from flat-packs.  Also, this head-to-head evaluation spanned over the course of 12 months (from April 2011 to March 2012).  The results showed that the average colony forming units per milliliter (CFU/mL) of spores plated onto the third party vendor TSA product was 1.07 x 10 to the 9th CFU/mL.  The NNLX TSA averaged 9.60 x 10 to the 8th CFU/mL.  The coefficient of variance of 7.47% is within the acceptable criteria for enumerated colonies. The results are interesting since third party vendors’ shelf-life have typically been three months for TSA.  Beyond the three months may result in drying or desiccation of the media exhibited by a thinner agar layer.  Whereas, the NNLX TSA flat-packs appeared to have maintained the initial agar thickness over the course of 12 months, and the enumeration results suggest that the nutrients within the BD Soybean-Casein that NNLX used were sufficient to promote similar colony growth to that of a third party vendor’s TSA with a shorter shelf-life.”

Group B Strep research from University of Texas Health Science Center

Dr. Jonathan Faro, lead physician on the research states, "We were very happy to have had the opportunity to present our poster at the 59th annual scientific meeting of the Society for Gynecologic Investigation in San Diego. This was a terrific opportunity to share our research with other investigators, and we were happy to see that our initial data showing that GBS may be detected in under one hour was well received. There was a genuine interest by several clinicians in this assay, and we hope to provide them with further data in the near future."
