5 May 2009 New biosensors for food safety screening solutions
Author Affiliations +
Hanson Technologies has developed the automated OmniFresh 1000 system to sample large volumes of produce wash water, collect the pathogens, and detect their presence. By collecting a continuous sidestream of wash water, the OmniFresh uses a sample that represent the entire lot of produce being washed. The OmniFresh does not require bacterial culture or enrichment, and it detects both live and dead bacteria in the collected sample using an in-line sensor. Detection occurs in an array biosensor capable of handling large samples with complex matrices. Additionally, sample can be sent for traditional confirming tests after the screening performed by the OmniFresh.
