Leatherhead Opens DirtyLab -new Facility for Pathogen Challenge Testing
Several confidential projects have already reaped the benefits of Leatherhead's DirtyLab. In addition, a Member-funded Forum project on pathogens in low-moisture foods, is currently being carried out in the facility; research is being undertaken to systematically establish the heat resistance and survival of pathogens in dry foods such as nuts, seeds, powder ingredients and flavours. DirtyLab is also being used to evaluate the survival of Salmonella in paprika; and Leatherhead's next study will look into the survival of salmonellae and Cronobacter sakazakii in dry infant formula.
