Invisible Sentinel Inc. Key Developments

Invisible Sentinel Inc. Launches Two New Detection Tools

Invisible Sentinel Inc. has developed, validated, and commercialised two new detection tools, namely brewMAP and brewLAP, powered by the firm's proprietary Veriflow(R) technology for breweries. brewMAP is utilised for the detection of Megasphaera and Pectinatus species, and brewLAP for the pan detection of lactic acid producing species that were developed and validated with the support of key partners who have successfully implemented Veriflow(R) technology at their breweries. Both products were launched globally in August 2016.

Invisible Sentinel, Inc. Introduces vinoPAL

Invisible Sentinel, Inc. introduced vinoPAL — a new product for preserving wine quality. Built on the company's signature Veriflow® platform, vinoPAL rapidly identifies the presence of spoilage organisms Pediococcus and Lactobacillus. The arrival of vinoPAL is a response to winemakers' request for a rapid, on-site detection tool for these spoilage organisms that can contribute to sluggish fermentations. Utilizing the same equipment and workflow as the vinoBRETT test for Brettanomyces, this new assay expands winemakers' ability to respond to issues and manage quality proactively at the winery. As harvest season approaches, winemakers have a heightened awareness of the potential for undesirable bacteria to enter the winery undetected. vinoPAL is a proactive measure for anticipating the financial impact of Pediococcus and Lactobacillus, and is sensitive even at low thresholds in juice and young wines. Proactive management of spoilage organisms saves time and money, and most importantly – preserves the value of wine.

Invisible Sentinel, Inc. Enters into Partnerships with Four Brewing Companies

Invisible Sentinel Inc. has entered into partnerships with four brewing companies for final validation of its Veriflow brewPAL. The technology by the University City start-up claims to be the first to provide same-day detection of pediococcus and lactobacillus, bacteria that attach to grain and can spoil the taste of beer. Last fall, Invisible Sentinel announced a partnership with Victory Brewing Co. in Downingtown to work on validation of Veriflow brewPAL. That effort has expanded with the addition of Yards Brewing Co. in Philadelphia; Weyerbacher Brewing Co. in Easton, Pa.; Russian River Brewing Co. in Santa Rosa, Calif.; and Kettlehouse Brewing Co. The new technology reduces detection time from several days to less than three hours, which could be the difference between a batch of beer headed to store shelves and one being dumped down the drain.
