Food Borne Illness and Microbial Testing

Microbial identification and confirmation

PerkinElmer, Inc. has launched the Solus One E. coli O157 Pathogen Detection Assay for high-volume microbial screening of raw beef trimmings, compatible with the Dynex DS2 automated reader.

Microbial DNA analysis and quantification

PerkinElmer has launched the MaxSignalâ„¢ HTS Total Aflatoxins and DON ELISA Kits for detection of deoxynivalenol (DON) mycotoxin testing in food safety applications.

Sample preparation for microbial analysis

The growth of NGS technologies in food testing will allow increased multiplexing for rapid detection and quantification of a expanded range of pathogens.

Environmental monitoring

New guidance from the US EPA mandates testing wastewater for PFAS, 40 so called forever chemicals, using established analytical techniques, many of which are currently in development in collaboration with the department of defense (DOD).
