The presence of increasingly complex food chains leaves brands vulnerable to the adulteration of their products. As a result, manufacturers require innovative testing methods to ensure the quality and safety of their products.
Here, we’ve pulled together a playlist of top interviews from The Scientists' Channel, our independent video platform for scientists and clinical experts around the world to share their work. Take a look at the videos below to learn more about how DNA-based, untargeted food testing methods, such as next-generation sequencing, are being employed in the fight against food fraud – and becoming increasingly important in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. Plus, download your free eBook guide to rapid food pathogen detection.
Sofia Nogueira, molecular biology laboratory manager at Jeronimo Martins, discusses how the Ion S5TM NGS system by Thermo Fisher Scientific enables full screening of all ingredients within a sample.
Patrick Bird, principal consultant at PMB Biotek Consulting, explains the impacts of COVID-19 on the food safety industry. Bird emphasizes the need for robust testing for variations of a disease and highlights invaluable techniques such as NGS.
Dr. Sandra Mourinha Chaves, CEO, Founder, and Head of R&D and Innovation at WeNou, explores the benefits of a DNA-based, untargeted food testing method, for ensuring the safety and quality of raw materials and final processed foods.
Roberta Pellesi, molecular biology specialist at Barilla, discusses how NGS can help protect brand reputations and guarantee product integrity. In Pellesi’s lab, they use the Thermo Fisher Scientific Ion S5TM NGS system as well as the Ion Chef System which helps the lab save hours of work time.
