Loop-mediated isothermal nucleic acid amplification (LAMP) for food microbiology testing

2 April 2017 | By ,

Contamination of food products with pathogenic microorganisms is a major concern for food safety. The issue is exacerbated by modern production systems where high volumes, high speed and global distribution are common features. In order to protect consumers, regulations and procedures are in place to control microbiological hazards in the…


Appropriate controls for PCR detection of foodborne pathogens

30 April 2012 | By Martin D’Agostino, Microbiologist, The Food and Environment Research Agency

Over the years, there has been a great increase in the number of PCR based assays for foodborne pathogen detection. For example, a very basic search for ‘salmonella food PCR assay’ using the database will produce over 600 results. Clearly, this has led to a huge choice of PCR-based…
