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 Genus plus Enteritidis & Typhimurium Detection LyoKit

The foodproof Salmonella Genus plus Enteritidis & Typhimurium Detection Kit detects and differentiates the genera Salmonella as well as the serovars S. Enteritidis and S. Typhimurium in one test. These two serovars are responsible for about 80 % of all foodborne Salmonella infections. Most commonly salmonellosis is associated with the consumption of poultry and egg products. According to Regulation (EU) No 1086/2011, all fresh poultry must be examined for S. Enteritidis and S. Typhimurium contamination. In the United States, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has published the Final Rule “Prevention of Salmonella Enteritidis in Shell Eggs During Production, Storage, and Transportation” (74 FR 33030), which will introduce methods requiring egg producers to test for S. Enteritidis.
