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® Salmonella Detection Kit

The foodproof Salmonella Detection Kits are based on 5’Nuclease or hybridization probes and provide fast, accurate detection of Salmonella spp.. Certified by AOAC-RI, MicroVal and NordVal, the kits have been validated with hundreds of different food matrices and a total of more than 750 different Salmonella serovars.
Salmonella are rod-shaped, Gram-negative bacteria. They are pooled in the genus Salmonella, and assigned to the family Enterobacteriaceae. They cause disease in humans and animals, including typhoid fever and diarrhea. Infection commonly occurs through ingestion of contaminated food, typically eggs and poultry.
