Food and water safety guidelines are important to follow when person’s immune system is challenged. Bacteria, genetically modified food or viruses can be passed to a person from food and water. Bio-Speedy® Food and Water Safety Kits allow fast, simple and reliable detection of pathogens, spoilage organisms, allergens, genetically modified plants and viruses in a variety of food and water samples.
The fight against foodborne pathogens and their diseases is increasing every day in the world. For this reason, Bioeksen has produced Real-Time Polymerase Chain Reaction (qPCR) based kits for the detection of the most commonly tested pathogens; Salmonella spp., Listeria monocytogenes and Escherichia coli O157 for microbiological food quality worldwide. Designed with an innovative approach, the kits are at least twice as fast and economical as alternative qPCR based kits and provide as accurate and reliable results as conventional methods. The kits enable to discriminate the dead / live cells in the samples and it is ensured that the detected pathogen is alive and no further confirmation is needed. In this way, pathogenic factors that may occur throughout the food chain can be measured quickly, economically and reliably. Making quick decisions, protecting human health and reducing economic losses are some of the benefits of the kits.
