DuPont makes pathogen testing results mobile

DuPont Bax system

DuPont Diagnostics has released a mobile application so customers can view food pathogen testing results on the move.

The DuPont BaxApp, available as a free download in the Apple App Store and iTunes, allows users to open BAX System software files from emails, hosting services and other sources, without accessing a networked computer.

The BAX System – an automated, PCR-based pathogen detection platform – generates testing results after each process run as a .bax file, which previously could be viewed only on a computer running BAX System software.

The systems development group inside the DuPont Diagnostics is a small team and the firm wanted the flexibility to adapt the application to future uses inside and outside of the company.

With the mobile BaxApp, technicians, lab managers and customer support teams can view result files on a mobile device, to minimize the time it could take to get back to a customer and allow companies to act quicker on potential food safety issues.

“The DuPont BaxApp is a valuable tool for companies that want to access their pathogen testing results outside of the laboratory – or even outside of the office,” said Jeff Rohrbeck, Diagnostics systems development manager, DuPont Nutrition & Health.

Rohrbeck used Xamarin Evolve, which claims to be the largest cross-platform develop­ment event in the world, and Xamarin University, Xamarin’s live, interactive mobile development training program.

The company is exploring an Android version of the application and may use Xamarin Test Cloud to test the Android devices on the market.
