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® Campylobacter Quantification Kit

The foodproof® Campylobacter Quantification Kit is suitable for the quantification of the four thermotolerant Campylobacter species C. jejuni, C. coli, C. lari and C. upsaliensis from poultry or meat rinse water. Additionally, the two most common pathogenic species, C. jejuni and C. coli, can be identified in two separate channels.
