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® Enterobacteriaceae plus Salmonella Detection LyoKit

The foodproof Enterobacteriaceae plus Salmonella Detection LyoKit allows the simultaneous detection of the genus Salmonella and the family Enterobacteriaceae by real-time PCR in two different fluorescence channels.
Since 2005, the EC 2073 requires the investigation of powdered infant formula for the pathogenic genus Salmonella and also recommends screening for the family Enterobacteriaceae as a hygiene indicator.
The foodproof Enterobacteriaceae plus Salmonella Detection Kit combines these two parameters, making it the only kit on the market that complies with the statutory requirements in a single test.
