Magna reported today a sharp increase last month in online sales of instant screening test for harmful levels of E.Coli and Salmonella. The product which is primarily designated for commercial clients has seen a steady increase since the E.coli outbreak two months ago that affected entire United States.
"Given the recent outbreak in food borne illnesses the applications for this product will be far reaching," says MMS General Manager Robert Greene "It a great feeling to know that your product can save lives." The test can alert food handlers to levels of harm within minutes, instead of the routine 2–5 days it takes to verify contamination from lab culture samples.
Online sales gains for the current month has also seen heavy volume as the Thanksgiving holiday grows closer. The product can be purchased online at http://www.foodtestingstrips.com and through local and international distributors. Magna also recently introduced product literature in Spanish and French which has also helped in online sales. "We have even had a shipment go to Iraq," says Greene.
