Case study: How a dairy processor improved quality with Neogen’s Soleris system

Neogen’s Soleris system is a rapid optical system for the detection of microbial contamination. It’s based on an innovative application of classic microbiology — the assay measures microbial growth by monitoring pH and other biochemical reactions that generate a color change. The results are monitored by the system, which provides an alert for samples that […]

Study on bacterial diversity in milk aims to improve food safety

Researchers at the University of California-Davis recently found that fresh (or raw) milk transported by tanker truck for processing shows “amazing bacterial diversity,” which even varies by season.

Reported in mBio, the researchers explained that while microbes with the potential to cause disease are destroyed during milk pasteurization, not all bacteria and their associated enzymes […]
