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® Brucella Detection Kit

The foodproof Brucella Detection Kit detects the genus Brucella and additionally identifies the two most common food-associated disease species Brucella abortus and Brucella melitensis. The rod-shaped, Gram-negative, aerobic bacteria are found in cows, sheep and pigs. The bacteria can be transmitted to humans through raw milk or meat causing brucellosis, also called Malta Fever.
