Microbiology & Food Safety

Food microbes

With the improvement of people's living standards, food safety has attracted an increasing number of attention. Food-derived diseases caused by microbial contamination are the most prominent problems in world food safety. During the food processing, pathogens often enter the food along with the production of raw materials, the processing of finished products, the packaging, as well as the storage and transportation of the products, causing food pollution and affecting the food safety of consumers. Therefore, microbial detection and identification plays an extremely significant role in evaluating the food hygiene quality and ensuring food safety.

The range of food microbial detection is quite extensive, including the microbes and their toxins that cause food poisoning, as well as food-borne pathogenic microbes, such as Salmonella, Aspergillus flavus, etc. COVID-19 is rampant all over the world, and it is common to report that coronavirus spread around the world in the form of frozen food via cold chain transportation. Thus, it has been proved that strengthening microbial detection is also an important part in the prevention and control of the coronavirus disease.
