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 SL Staphylococcus aureus Detection Kit

The foodproof SL Staphylococcus aureus Detection Kit is suitable for the specific detection of pathogenic species Staphylococcus aureus in foods. The results are available within 24 hours.
Staphylococcus aureus is found almost everywhere in nature, including human skin and in the upper respiratory tract. Usually it does not cause any disease symptoms. However, Staphylococcus aureus is one of the most important pathogens in hospital-acquired (nosocomial) infections. One transmission route is through food contaminated by human contact.
