Rapid Pathogen Testing for Your Flavor Materials


When it comes to performing rapid pathogen detection of flavors or raw ingredients, some microbiological test kits can often lead to false positives or false negative results in compounds due to the complex nature of the materials tested. To discuss the differences in rapid pathogen detection methods, Patrick Bird, microbiology R&D lab supervisor for Q Laboratories, will be presenting on the topic at Flavorcon 2018.

During his “Fit for Purpose: Matrix Verification Studies for Microbiological Methods and Rapid Pathogen Detection” presentation, Bird will determine which rapid pathogen detection method is best suited for your product and company. Additionally, he will examine how partnering with a qualified laboratory to perform verification studies can help meet Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) Standards and assure accurate data reporting.
