Sequencing: The answer to a safer food supply worldwide

Sequencing, a useful DNA technology for organism characterization, has received additional recognition as an effective method to identify and subtype food pathogens.

Last month, a peer-reviewed article about the different methods for Salmonella characterization highlighted sequencing as a solid approach to identifying the pathogen.

Neogen hosts upcoming metagenomics webinars

The food safety industry has seen many of changes and improvements in technologies that make production environments and foods safer. One technology that’s making a big splash is genomic testing. With this new technology, the industry can achieve a greater level of visibility and understanding of what’s around them at a microbiological level.

The advantages of metagenomics over genome sequencing

Earlier this week, Neogen’s own Joe Heinzelmann was a special guest on Food Safety Magazine’s podcast, “Food Safety Matters.”

Heinzelmann dropped by to talk about metagenomics, next generation sequencing (NGS) and whole genome sequencing (WGS). This technology can help the food processing industry detect spoilage organisms within facilities, eliminate them, and reduce the possibility of […]
