Cheese Manufacturer has Validated Warnex Pathogen System
Santi & C. S.P.A., one of the world's largest manufacturers of Gorgonzola cheese, which purchased the Warnex Rapid Pathogen Detection System in late 2004, has now completed the validation and intends to proceed with broad implementation of the Warnex system in its production facilities.
Santi & C. purchased the Warnex system through Warnex's distributor Foss Italia. Santi & C. uses the Warnex system to test for the presence of Salmonella and Listeria in their products. Santi & C. is a dairy company located in Cameri, Italy, specializing in the production of Gorgonzola cheese with experience spanning four generations. The company employs 115 people and has facilities covering 10,000 square meters, with plans to expand to 30,000 square meters. In 2003, Santi & C. had revenues of 25 million Euros, selling to major Italian and international supermarket chains.
The Warnex Rapid Pathogen Detection System uses cutting-edge DNA-based technology to rapidly and accurately determine the presence of pathogens in a food sample. The system allows for the simultaneous detection of multiple pathogens and processing of samples within 12 to 48 hours.
