Companies can use the NeoSEEK service to comply with the USDA's recently implemented regulation that requires the testing of raw beef trim for six new STEC serogroups.
Our microbial ID service provides fast, confidential and accurate identification of bacteria and some common fungi to GMP standards.
A quantitative test for the mycotoxin fumonisin that requires only water in the sample extraction process.
INTEGRA VIAFLO 384 is a new handheld 384-channel electronic pipette that enables fast, precise and easy transfer of 384 samples simultaneously.
BioLumix automation dramatically improves turn-around time and directly impacts key profit drivers, yielding fast accurate results for raw materials, environmental samples, and finished products.
Intended for the selective enrichment of Vibrio spp., Lab M's new Alkaline Saline Peptone Water (ISO) is defined in the international standard ISO 21872:2007 - Microbiology of food and animal feeding stuffs:
Rapid method based on rRNA detection screens for Cronobacter species from infant formula with common equipment (microplate reader). One assay can be done within 2.5 hours and one detection plate contains up to 96 tests.
In January, the UK Food Safety Authority found beef burgers which actually contained up to 100% horse meat during a routine inspection. This month horse meat was also found in other deep frozen products like lasagna and mousaka, which were labeled
Food Standards Agency in the UK has reported the recall of a number of Christmas cakes due to mould spoilage.
Detection of the pathogen is achieved using a hand-held, fully contained cassette that combines isothermal Helicase Dependent Amplification (HDA) with its lateral flow detection technology.
The system targets and amplifies nucleic acid in enriched samples through a unique combination of isothermal DNA amplification and bioluminescence detection technologies.
METTLER TOLEDO has introduced Rainin BioClean pipette tips. These 100% inert tips help ensure safer ingredients, critical to product safety and consistency.
Experimental results show limit of detection below 10 CFU per vial with core APCheck consumable vial now approved for a shelf life of 12 months in temperature conditions between 2 and 25C.
MALDI Biotyper offers the benefit of very fast microbial id, the reference library has broader coverage of microbial species and is applicable for isolates obtained from food safety and consumer protection sources.
