Microbiological analysis is important in determining the safety and quality of food. Conventional methods are labor intensive, time consuming, and costly. To address these concerns, rapid methods in microbiological testing have been developed. Among the latest and most advanced technology in pathogen detection is Glenwood’s ANSR, which enables rapid molecular pathogen detection in less than 24 hours. This system uses an innovative isothermal DNA amplification process to amplify DNA to detectable levels, and fluorescent molecular beacon technology for the detection of target pathogen.
