Bringing the Power of PCR DNA Identification to Food Safety

Posted: 1 February 2018 | | No comments yet

When the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) was discovered nearly 35 years ago, it ushered in a revolution in biology.

However, at the time of its discovery, few scientists or engineers foresaw how the technology would lead to another type of revolution in food safety.

The technology made it possible to identify the exact species of any organism, based on the tiniest bit of DNA- (or RNA-) containing residue.┬áThis is possible due to a very simple process that has now become largely automated. This whitepaper will discuss how PCR technology works withing a series of steps…
