Modern real-time PCR methods in the food & feed industry
R-Biopharm invites you to take part in an online presentation to be held on Tuesday 20th October at 11.00 am (CEST).
Aspects of food quality such as food authentication, genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and food allergens have become more important while foodborne diseases caused by bacteria or viruses remain to be a major problem.
Nucleic acid detection has become a valuable alternative to traditional detection methods is often the analytical tool of choice for this wide range of applications. For some applications, qualitative detection is sufficient, while others demand a quantitative result.
As a busy laboratory, you will typically be analyzing a wide variety of samples looking for different kind of analytes. The advantages of real-time PCR include speed, specificity, sensitivity and the potential for automation. Automated, walk away workflows in the daily lab routine are favorable as they may improve efficiency and keep consistent results and reduce handling errors.
This online seminar will discuss the overall real-time PCR detection and application possibilities in the food and feed industry. Moreover, how a possible implementation of a semi-automated nucleic acid preparation, presents an opportunity to manage the increasing demands of the daily lab routine while still maintaining quality results.
