Ensuring food safety and integrity throughout the supply chain has become progressively more challenging as both supply chain complexity and globalization of the food supply have increased. To address this major and growing concern, Genetic ID NA, Inc. announced that it has expanded its food safety and authenticity services to include microbial pathogen testing for food and animal feed. Food and feed borne pathogens are a major concern for manufacturers, retailers and distributors alike. Contaminated food and feed can result in processing delays and losses in revenue, customers and reputation.
Testing for microbial pathogens such as Salmonella and Enterobacteriaceae is often needed to conform to food and feed safety regulatory policies or internal quality control programs. Genetic ID NA, Inc.’s test offerings cover a broad range of microbial pathogens and utilize AOAC official and AFNOR methods, thereby providing the highest level of confidence in reliable test results.
According to Dr. Heather Secrist, Genetic ID CEO, addition of microbial pathogen testing furthers Genetic ID’s mission to provide customers a broad portfolio of services in the areas of food safety and authenticity and strengthens the company’s position in the food safety testing market. “This addition ties in well with our Food Authenticity Program and allows us to provide comprehensive support to the food industry in terms of food safety and integrity testing.”
