Using the on-site, in-shift pathogen diagnostic Sample6 DETECT in conjunction with Sample6 CONTROL, a cloud-based management and control system for food safety, manufacturers can be more in control of food safety.
Following an outbreak of E.coli O157, Food Standards Scotland have banned all cheese products made by Errington Cheese, however Professor High Pennington thinks this was a heavy handed over reaction.
Available in 4-, 6-, 8- and 12-channel versions, INTEGRA's VOYAGER II pipettes are the only commercially available pipette range where the tip spacing can be changed electronically, up to 40 individual custom programs can be saved making often repeated pipetting protocols even easier to implement.
Priorclave will be exhibiting their range of low energy laboratory autoclaves at Medica 2016, in Dusseldorf 14th - 17th November, an autoclave with a clear sided panel will allow stand visitors to see inside and view the clean, structured lines of the build.
Clear Labs is offering a Whole Genome Sequencing service to the food industry to help identify specific pathogen strains, trace root cause of problems - correlate strain of bacterial with specific food ingredient or supplier.
Using proprietary enrichment media, magnetic antibody coated beads followed by detection with liquid crystal technology , the Xpress™ is faster and cheaper than traditional PCR systems with virtually no chance of cross reactivity.
For lateral flow immunoassay developers, Morffitechnology from BBI Solutions overcomes problems associated with using BSA as a conjugate blocker ie cross-reactivity, lot-to-lot variation etc.

Microbiologics building expansion will include more production capacity, expanded research and development facilities, including a virology laboratory, and additional professional offices.
The BAX® System X5 provides fast and accurate pathogen detection in a smaller format. With room for 32 samples, it is a reliable, genetics-based testing solution that is ideal for many food companies, contract labs and government agencies.
Intertek offers a complete audit and testing service for a range of food microbiology pathogens including E.coli O157, Campylobacter, Salmonella and Listeria.
Providing a contract testing service for Singapore, The Philippines, Thailand and Indonesia, this new laboratory will be able to test for food spoilage and foodborne pathogens as well as screening for mycotoxins, veterinary residues, organic contaminants and GMO testing.
Don't have enough plates to justify a fully automated robotic liquid handling system but need to run assays in 1536-well plates? INTEGRA has a new plate holder that handles 1536-well pipetting using the adaptable, easy-to-use benchtop VIAFLO 384.
Combining the high-level sensitivity of PCR with visual analysis using lateral flow test strips, this beer spoilage kit from Döhler’s detects horA and/or horC genes in either a beer sample or from an individual colony on a plate.
A common protocol is available for rapid microbial ATP detection in the different matrices of infant foods, the method is currently in use for routine product release, delivering faster product release with reduced labour costs.
Suitable for homogenising a range of volumes from 80 to 400mL., the Gosselin S-Blender-1 quickly and accurately blends samples for microbiological testing of food, agricultural, chemical and cosmetic samples.
Labplas' RACK’N’LAB is a light weight versatile rack which allows sample bags to be held upright without the need for bottles or specially designed bags. Marked rows allows samples to be easily identified whilst being held securely reducing risk of spillage.
Following the recent Hepatitis A Virus outbreak linked to Egyptian strawberries in the USA, this is a useful resource covering recent and historical outbreaks of this foodbourne virus.
