Foodborne Pathogens

A pathogen is a synonym for a disease-causing microorganism. Food pathogens represent a special form of microbial pathogens, which are picked up and spread through food.
Below a number of pathogens are listed, for which BIOTECON Diagnostics offers suitable foodproof® DNA extraction and real-time PCR detection kits. Many of the pathogen kits have been certified by recognized institutions such as AOAC-RI, MicroVal or NordVal (see licensing options / validations), and thus independently tested for quality and safety.

foodproof® SL Bacillus cereus Detection Kit

The foodproof SL Bacillus cereus Detection Kit specifically detects the pathogenic species Bacillus cereus in foods.
Bacillus cereus is a toxin-forming pathogen in the food industry. Its heat-stable spores germinate in hot held foods, which is why there is particularly an increased risk in places with catered food. The spores of B. cereus also survive drying processes and can be found in dried products, such as spices or dried mushrooms.
