Why wait days to get results
Quality testing is critical to reduce risk and ensure brand protection. The presence of food borne pathogens can result in costly product recalls and in the worst case human fatalities, while beverage spoilers can lead to distribution of unappealing product with off taste, color and flavor. In both cases, manufacturer image is soiled resulting in economic consequences that are challenging to overcome.
Most producers have food safety programs incorporating traditional culture method. However, to facilitate simple and rapid quality monitoring, Pall developed a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) based method called the GeneDisc® system. This system offers sensitive and specific detection of micro-organisms in a matter of hours. This extremely accurate tool can be easily implemented in a routine quality control laboratory. The equipment automation ensures reliability and ease of use for microbiological testing.
Food and beverage producers can implement GeneDisc technology in a variety of applications including pathogen detection in food safety applications and yeast and bacteria monitoring for beverage spoilers. All methods can be implemented at different process control points from raw materials to final product release. Additionally, environmental testing can help prevent product contamination or further penetration within a facility.
