Come and join us at the 7th Food Sure Europe 2017
(Safety & Quality Summit) on 22-24 May 2017.
Day 2 - Dr Ed Haynes presents a case study of our new traceback service (OriGen)
The OriGen service is currently available for Listeria, Salmonella, Campylobacter and E. coli but has the potential to be rolled out to a range of bacterial species, so please get in touch if you have another organism of interest. Pricing and turnaround depend on a number of factors such as availability and batch size, so please contact us to discuss your individual needs.
Our service compares the WGS (whole genome sequences) of samples taken of the
bacterium of interest from around a facility, and potentially over time, to suggest whether
multiple sources of infection are present or if a facility has a persistent infection.
Additionally, we are able to store the genome data and reanalyse when
new information comes to light. Every time a customer uses the service we can
reanalyse with all of their previous data, and tell them if their situation is
changing (new strains have been introduced) or remains the same
(their hygiene processes are ineffective).
The event builds upon previous years to focus on how the industry can tackle the current challenges facing food safety and quality professionals within food and beverage companies across Europe. The Food Sure agenda covers the whole spectrum of safety and quality in the food and beverage industry. From cutting edge microbial pathogen studies to practical implementation of process controls and risk assessments.
The summit will provide best practice regulatory compliance, proven approaches to enhancing food safety and initiatives to achieve excellent quality assurance. The 2017 event will, for the first time also be co-located with Food Innovate to create Food World.

This pioneering technology can deliver invaluable information for a food business trying to deal with a long term contamination problem and has lead us to launch our new traceback service called OriGen to aid in these investigations to avoid those costly recalls, reducing waste and saving money.
