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 Clostridium perfringens Detection Kit

The foodproof SL Clostridium perfringens Detection Kit specifically detects the pathogenic species Clostridium perfringens in foods.
Once in the intestine, food contaminated with C. perfringens is considered harmful due to the build of enterotoxins it produces. This bacterium is an anaerobic spore former, proliferating under conditions without oxygen, such as canned food or within a piece of meat. C. perfringens forms environmentally resistant spores that are not killed by boiling and other cooking processes.
