VALIDATION OF ANALYTICAL METHODS FOR THE DETECTION OF MICROBIAL PATHOGENS IN FOOD

Jack Rowe

Certified Laboratories, Inc.

Bridging Science with Service Since 1926


Manufacturer’s Validation

  • AOAC Performance Tested Method (RI)

  • AOAC Official Methods of Analysis


AOAC Performance Tested Method (RI): Origins

  • Rapid increase in Proprietary Methods

    • Speed to market critical

  • AOAC OMA

  • Higher Cost, More Time

  • Performance Tested Methods

    • Kicked off in 1991

    • Opportunity to achieve some level of validation in less time

    • Often serves as a “pre-collaborative” until full OMA is completed


  • AOAC Performance Tested Method (RI)

    Matrix Study

    • One laboratory

    • 1-4 Foods or Surface

    • Inclusivity, Exclusivity, Robustness, Stability and Lot to Lot Variation


    AOAC Official Methods of Analysis

    • Pre-Collaborative Study and Collaborative Study

    • Harmonization Collaborative Study


    Matrix Study

    • Selection of matrices associated with pathogen

    • Natural vs. Artificial contamination

    • Strain types

    • Competing flora

    • Fractional results


    Harmonization Collaborative Study

    • Quantitative

    • 8 laboratories minimum, 1-6 matrices

    • 4 inoculation levels/matrix

    • 2 test portions per level per matrix per method

    • Qualitative

      • 10 laboratories minimum, 1-6 matrices,

      • 3 inoculation levels per matrix,

      • 6 test portions per level per matrix per method

      • Method compared to Reference Method


    Method compared to Reference Method

    • FDA BAM

    • USDA FSIS

    • AOAC

    Validated Matrices


    Domestic Imports


    Method Verification In House

    • FDA will accept all matrices validated by the manufacturer for the AOAC study

    • Other matrices must be verified by laboratory

      to determine if the method is suitable for the matrix


    Was it Validated?

    • Amaranth

    • Coconut

    • Cumin

    • Egg Cracklet

    • Hing Powder

    • Tahina/Sesame Seeds

    • Octopus


    Method Verification In House

    Spike level must not exceed 30 cells

    (25 gram sample)

    Seven successful validations must occur

    (No false negatives or positives)


    Spike Preparation

    • Salmonella culture

      Atypical or Typical

    • Serial dilution in Phosphate Buffer

    • Plated in Duplicate 1ml and 0.1ml

    • Selective Agar

      Hektoen or XLD


    Spike Calculation

    • Count plates after incubation per BAM

      Example

      Dilution 4 125 Dilution 5 14

      Dilution 4 113 Dilution 5 12

      125 + 113 / 2 = 119 cfu/ml


    Spike Calculation

    • Dilution 4 tube contains 119 cfu/ml

    • X ml x 119 cfu/ml = 30 cfu

    • 30 cfu/119 cfu/ml = X ml

    • X = 0.252 or 250 ul


    Verification Set Up

    Prepare sample per BAM (or BioMerieux)

    instructions

    Weigh out 25 gram sample and spike with calculated volume

    Plate the calculated spike volume in

    duplicate on selective agar


    Verification

    • Incubate per normal protocol

    • Confirm counts from spike volume do not exceed 30 cells

    • Control sample must produce a negative result. If the sample is “presumptive positive” it contains an unspecified amount of Salmonella and demonstration of < 30 cfu/ 25 gram sample is not possible

    • Abandon Verification


    Verification

    • All controls must give appropriate reactions

    • Positive Cultural Control

    • Negative Cultural Control

    • Diluent Blank

    • The Presumptive Positive spike must be confirmed following reference method


    Final Package

    • Biochemical Identification of Spike, Negative and Positive Control

    • Media preparation logs for all media used

    • Autoclave Sterilization Records for all media

    • Media Sterility records for all media used

    • Balance Calibration Check Records

    • Temperature Records for all Appliances

    • Water Quality Records

    • Confirmation serves as Document of Productivity
