BIOTECON Diagnostics focuses on the development and production of innovative, rapid detection systems for pathogens, spoilage organisms, genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and allergens by real-time PCR.
The foodproof® detection and quantification kits developed and produced by BIOTECON Diagnostics allow fast, simple and reliable detection of pathogens and spoilage organisms in a variety of samples including fruit juices, beer, chocolate, baby food, spices, meat, plants and dairy products. The high quality of foodproof®; products has repeatedly been validated and confirmed by independent institutes such as AOAC, Nordval and MicroVal.
The assays are based on real-time PCR, a simple and proven solution for the reliable detection of genetic information. The products are easy to use and results are generated within a few hours. Many of the kits are available in the LyoKit format with reagents pre-dispensed in a microtitre plate. Controls are included in each kit and false positive results are avoided by the use of Uracil-N-Glycosylase (UNG).
For nucleic acid extraction Biotecon offer optimized and validated foodproof® Sample Preparation Kits, compatible with every foodproof® real-time PCR kit. The kits are rapid and easy to use, and enable you to work efficiently with all types of sample matrices, including difficult complex samples.
We offer a package of equipment, including thermocyclers, for customers wanting to set up a new molecular testing facility in their laboratory.
For labs with a high work throughput we offer automated systems for nucleic acid extraction from food and feed samples, and for subsequent PCR set up. The specific requirements of the laboratory are determined to select the most appropriate instrument for their needs.
