ENSURE THE QUALITY OF YOUR FOOD PRODUCTS

Globalization, increased imports and exports and free trade agreements have led to greater exchange and access to food worldwide. Along with this, the problems associated with fraud such as adulteration, substitution or forgery have increased. Nowadays the two main fundamental areas are the identification of animal and plant species and the quantification of transgenics. The identification of species (especially for processed foods) makes it necessary to resort to the use of Molecular Biology techniques: identification of proteins or DNA.

In addition, the detection of animal species in meat is not only a tool for fraud control, but it is also important for religious reasons, particually relevant in the authentication of a Halal or Kosher products.

In addition to fraud, contamination of food through microorganisms can alter the properties of the food (not pathogens) or can be a major public health problem (pathogens).

Our products have been developed with highly innovative technology which, given its potential, contains many niches and products that can be developed in different sectors:

Food industry
Meat and fishery products fraud, identification and characterization of transgenics, allergens, microorganisms.

Food and cosmetic industry
Identification of illegal biological elements.

Veterinary industry
Identification and characterization of microorganisms.

Health
Identification of microorganisms and characterization of them in clinical samples, detection of genetic diseases.

OUR SOLUTION

To ensure the control along the process, a rapid, easy and cost-effective product is needed.

Our technology is based on Multi-target Rapid Detection Techniques (MRDT) using the PAS technology (printed array strip).
