Life Technologies Corporation (LIFE +2.3%) has received a Letter of No Objection from the USDA to develop its RapidFinder STEC, a same-day, multi-strain E. coli detection system. The RapidFinder provides meat producers a solution to detect the presence of multiple strains of E. coli in raw beef in just 10 hours, as compared to the standard six-day process established by the USDA Microbiology Laboratory Guidebook.
