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.

microproof® Streptococcus pneumoniae Detection Kit

The microproof Streptococcus pneumoniae Detection Kit was developed for rapid detection of Streptococcus pneumoniae by real-time PCR.
Streptococcus pneumoniae, or pneumococcus, is a Gram-positive, alpha-hemolytic, aero-tolerant, anaerobic member of the genus Streptococcus. As an important human pathogen, S. pneumoniae was identified as a major cause of pneumonia in the late 19th century.
