Foodsafety is related to everyone's health and life safety. With the development ofeconomy and society, people's awareness of food safety is graduallystrengthened. More and more countries have begun to pay attention to theproblem of food safety under the severe situation of the continuous increase offoodborne diseases worldwide and the frequent occurrence of unqualified productsby food manufacturers.
Dueto the features of high sensitivity and specificity, molecular detectiontechnology is widely used in the detection of food-borne pathogenicmicroorganisms, genetically modified ingredients, food-derived ingredientsidentification and crop germplasm identification, involving almost all foodcategories such as grain and oil, fruits and vegetables, meat, dairy productsand aquatic products.
General foodborne pathogenic bacteriadetection items include: Salmonella, Escherichia coli O157, Staphylococcusaureus, Vibrio parahaemolyticus, Listeria monocytogenes, Cronobacter SPP.,Yersinia enterocolitica, Bacillus cereus, etc. General foodborne pathogenicfungi detection items, including: Aspergillus flavus, Aspergillus variegatum,Aspergillus ochraceus, Aspergillus carboniferus, Aspergillus nesterus,Penicillium orange, Fusarium globularis, etc.General foodborne pathogenic virustesting items include: Norovirus, Coxsackie virus, rotavirus, hepatitis Avirus, coronavirus, Zika virus, etc.
Transgenic ingredients detection:Qualitative transgenic ingredients detection is carried out by detecting thesource genes and elements adopted by the GMO species. The real-time PCRdetection method is a general detection method identified by national standardsfor transgenic products (GB/T 38505-2020). Common Transgenic ingredientsdetection food include rice, corn, soybean, rape, potato, sugar beet, alfalfaand their processed products.
The identification of animal-derivedingredients is mainly used for the detection of food adulteration. The commonidentification of food-derived ingredients is the detection of true and falsemeat, including: chicken, duck, goose, cow, pig, sheep, horse, donkey, mouse,fox and other animal-derived ingredients detection.Bioer Technology provides vital instruments, reagentsand consumables for food safety molecular testing solutions, including nucleicacid purification solutions for complex food samples, nucleic acid detectionkits for the identification of animal-derived ingredient.
