The genesig q16 is a DNA detection instrument which offers direct identification of food products origins and what’s within them.
In order to eliminate health risks to the consumer, there is a need to determine the source of food products and to check for food adulteration. DNA detection allows for animal/plant foods products to have species origin determination (speciation) and to identify whether a bacteria, fungus or virus has contaminated the food.
Why should you use a genesig q16 to test food?
- Protect your brand by reducing product recalls risk and negative press
- Increases manufacturing efficiency by reducing downtime
- Very simple to implement in-house
- Very small instrument so will not require large space
- The genesig q16 can be used ANYWHERE
When do you need DNA detection?
- Speciation – The q16 can calculate the exact percentage of a particular species the food product contains (e.g. how much horse is there in my beefburger)
- Animal Finder – Can determine animal presence in non-animal products or as part of a cleaning procedure (e.g. testing the manufacturing line has been effectively cleaned)
- Pathogen detection – Can identify specific harmful organisms which might have contaminated food (e.g. salmonella on chicken)
- GMO – Identification of food products which contain GMO modifications
