SUNNYVALE, CA / ACCESSWIRE / May 7, 2015 / The ongoing Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) between Arrayit Corporation (OTCQB: ARYC) and the United States Department of Agriculture’s Agricultural Research Service (USDA-ARS), "Rapid and Cost Effective Detection Technologies for Noroviruses and Other Foodborne Pathogens," entitles Arrayit to negotiate for an exclusive license to commercialize the technology.
Much of the food consumed in the United States, including 50% of the produce the U.S. consumers use during the winter months, is grown outside of the country. Arrayit and USDA-ARS are developing food safety technologies that can be applied to various foods, wherever they are grown to include key food-producing nations such as Brazil, Canada, China, various European countries, Mexico and Peru.
Arrayit and the USDA-ARS have entered into a CRADA to develop a rapid, portable, cost-effective and high-throughput detection system for surveillance of multiple bacterial and viral foodborne pathogens including Campylobacter, E. coli, hepatitis, Listeria, norovirus and Salmonella.
