Rapid DNA screening to secure the global food supply chains

Project description

On-site DNA test for the food supply chain

Bacteria, allergens and undeclared substances can contaminate raw ingredients and finished products during processing at any stage of the supply chain. This results in huge economic losses. Unfortunately, mitigation measures are expensive, and laboratory tests are time consuming. Consequently, most food products arrive to the market without comprehensive food safety tests, resulting in food recalls. The EU-funded DNAFoil project presents the world’s first portable, completely self administered on-site DNA test. The innovation allows for validating supply chain integrity in 30 minutes, without a lab, equipment and disruption to the process, offering instantaneous testing in the field. DNAFoil system is available for pork, beef, multi-spectrum vegetal detection, and Salmonella, Escherichia coli and Listeria DNA test.
