The pathogen test kit is implemented as a preventive measure in food hygiene and sanitation to reduce, and eventually eliminate foodborne diseases. Foodborne pathogens can be present in a variety of foods, and it is critical to detect them to ensure a safe food supply and prevent foodborne illnesses. The most common foodborne illnesses that pathogen testing is concerned with are salmonella, listeria, and E. coli. These bacteria can enter the food chain through contaminated, animal, fruit, and vegetable products.
Foodborne pathogens pose a major threat and challenge to the food industry, and public health. Food poisoning from these pathogens can cause illness and possibly death with symptoms of acute diarrhea, vomiting, nausea, fever, abdominal cramp, and fatigue.
Food manufacturers must implement a pathogen environmental monitoring (PEM) effort to eliminate pathogens associated with the risk of causing food-borne disease, protect consumer health and prevent products recall. The general strategy of prevention of foodborne diseases caused by microbiology is required under the HACCP system to develop food standards, guidelines, and codes of practice.
Due to advancement of the technology, pathogen testing can be tested through molecular diagnostic with a simple method, time-saving, and less microbiological training. Neogen ANSR Pathogen Detection Kit is a quantitative analysis that can yield results faster than PCR testing as it works based on an isothermal amplification reaction method it exponentially amplifies the DNA of any bacteria present in food and environmental samples to detectable levels. Also, Neogen Reveal Pathogen detection kits are a qualitative analysis that gives accurate results for various common pathogens using antibody-based lateral flow strips.
