Food microbiology testing information

From enrichment to identification

Solutions for isolation, detection and confirmation of microorganisms in meat, poultry, fruit and vegetables, seafood, dairy and other food and beverage products. We have solutions that simplify the workflow of a food testing laboratory using traditional (culture media), immunological and rapid real-time PCR methods to identify pathogens (Salmonella, Listeria) and routine (coliforms, yeast and mold) organisms.
