If you need to identify the nature and source of contamination in any food item, OriGen from Fera gives you all the capabilities you need. OriGen uses state-of-the-art Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS) to identify the source of bacterial contamination in foods. It can be available as a kit, with full instructions, backed up by support and advice from our scientists.
It can help you to quickly trace the cause of contamination and avoid expensive and damaging product recalls. As supply chains expand across the globe and become ever more complex, quality control systems are coming under increasing strain, and the number of product recalls is growing. OriGen can help you manage the risks by tracking bacterial contaminants and locating the source of contamination – it can even pinpoint a single machine or raw ingredient as the root cause.
WGS allows for a new level of precision in dealing with bacteria entering the food supply chain, minimising the chances of future contamination from the same source.
The OriGen test can find the source of four major food-borne bacteria:
All analyses are fully validated and performed to current industry standards.
