Our teams often work in other commercial industry partners to bring new ideas and innovation to the forefront and our latest white paper considers the 'Safety Assessment of Food Contact Materials' and describes the issues of chemicals migrating into food from packaging materials, the need to assess the safety of those chemicals that migrate, and the role that high-resolution mass spectrometry has to play in the related analysis.

OriGen - New Traceback Service

A new and exciting food contamination assessment service is now available. OriGen will help to trace the problem back to its source and provide you with the tools to prevent future product recalls as a result of contamination – putting you back in control.

  • Immediately following a notification by your in-house testing team or a report of a contamination outbreak, contact Fera, and we’ll help you identify the best samples to collect
  • Using state of the art Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS) technology, we can distinguish the different pathogen strains from around the facility
  • The results of our WGS analysis will then be interpreted along with information about where the culture was obtained from, to suggest sources and routes of contamination
