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® E. coli and Shigella Detection Kit

The foodproof E. coli and Shigella Detection Kit detects the important species E. coli and the genus Shigella, a group of Gram-negative, facultative anaerobic, rod-shaped bacteria in the family Enterobacteriaceae. Shigella can cause very severe shigellosis or dysentery.
