From real time PCR to today’s next-generation sequencing, evolving molecular diagnostic technologies are shaping how food is tested and innovation in food development.
Why are LIMS solutions important against the backdrop of increasing testing and regulation in the food industry? – An interview with Core Informatics’ Anthony Uzzo.
While the first application of molecular methods for food could be attributed to the invention of the genetically modified corn plant, wide adoption of these technologies was ushered in through use in detecting food borne pathogens.
How will food labs meet the demands of the future? What role will FSMA regulations play? And how are labs dealing with globalization of the food chain?
Thermo Fisher Scientific’s LIMS expert, Colin Thurston, explains how laboratory informatics can help food labs cope with large amounts of data as well as regulatory compliance.
From increasing use of rapid micro methods, to greater concern over Salmonella, a number of dynamics are at play that present both opportunities and minefields for players in this field.
Companies will increasingly find themselves in circumstances where the federal government is demanding to take environmental or finished product samples. In those circumstances, a companion sample may not be your friend.
