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 plus Cronobacter Detection LyoKit

Our foodproof Salmonella plus Cronobacter Detection LyoKit allows simultaneous detection of Salmonella and Cronobacter by real-time PCR. Since November 2005, the Regulation (EC) 2073/2005 by the European Commission requires the investigation of powdered infant formula for the pathogenic genera Cronobacter and Salmonella. Our foodproof Salmonella plus Cronobacter Detection LyoKit detects these two parameters in a single multiplex reaction. It has been validated for the most relevant dairy food matrices including powdered infant formula, special purpose medical formulations and follow-on products.
The foodproof Salmonella plus Cronobacter Detection LyoKit complements our portfolio for the infant formula industry: In addition to the detection of Salmonella and Cronobacter, legal guidelines recommend screening for Enterobacteriaceae as a hygiene indicator. The latter can be detected with our foodproof Enterobacteriaceae plus Cronobacter Detection Kit.
