The World Health Organization has estimated that almost 1 in 10 people (600 million globally) suffer every year from foodborne illnesses caused by the consumption of food contaminated with dangerous bacteria. Even though most healthy individuals will recover within a short period, this is not always the case. Sometimes foodborne illnesses may lead to chronic or even life-threatening health issues. Vulnerable groups including young children, pregnant women, the elderly, and people with compromised immune systems are at greater risk from foodborne pathogens.
The emergence of new pathogens in agri-food products requires the use of identification methods beyond the conventional diagnostic tests. Conventional molecular techniques usually target a small fraction of the information contained in a pathogen’s genome and are characterized by a limited ability to: capture all pathogens and distinguish between more infectious pathogen strains.
- Customization of the analysis tailored to the aspects of the manufacturing process and supply chain.
- The prospect of detection of all pathogens (bacteria, fungi, viruses, parasites, etc.) or beneficial microorganisms (e.g. probiotics) in food samples.
- Provide training to non-experts for day-to-day testing with portable on-site sequencing tools.
- An automated online database where the user can either upload their sequencing data for quick conclusions or receive our lab’s sequencing results.
- Distinguish between natural sources of contamination or improper handling through the enrichment of the online database with manufacturing variables and authentic sample types.
