Food Sure (Safety & Quality Summit) - 22-24 May 2017

Come and join us at the 7th Food Sure Europe 2017
(Safety & Quality Summit)
on 22-24 May 2017 - STAND 13
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).
