Invisible Sentinel, Inc. Key Developments

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.

Invisible Sentinel Inc. and Jackson Family Wines Partner on Diagnostic for the Wine Industry

Invisible Sentinel Inc. announced that it will partner with Jackson Family Wines, on a first-in-class rapid diagnostic to detect Brettanomyces, a wine-spoiling yeast. The diagnostic assay, called Veriflow(R) BRETT, will be developed with the use of Invisible Sentinel's proprietary Veriflow(R) technology, which is already the basis of tests marketed to detect microbes of concern in food production and distribution. The development of Veriflow(R) BRETT will take advantage of the deep experience of Jackson Family Wines, and its acclaimed portfolio of wineries across California as well as internationally. The agreement between Invisible Sentinel and Jackson Family Wines anticipates that a successfully developed Veriflow(R) assay to detect Brettanomyces will eventually be marketed across the wine industry.

Invisible Sentinel, Inc. Appoints Paul Touhey as Executive Chairman

Invisible Sentinel, Inc. announced that Paul Touhey, formerly President and Chief Executive Officer of Fujirebio Diagnostics, has been appointed Executive Chairman. Touhey brings more than 25 years of accomplishment in the diagnostics industry to Invisible Sentinel's management team. During his 10-year tenure as the President and CEO of Fujirebio Diagnostics, the company became the worldwide leader for cancer-diagnostics. He was appointed to the Board of Invisible Sentinel in October 2012.
