Main goals of Project

 

The purpose of this project is to develop a device for identifying particular key pathogens in pork meat, some of which have been relatively overlooked by research. The nominated solution will be an analyzer that will utilise a combination of recent advances in immuno-chromatography and optical scanner technologies, together with specific monoclonal antibodies with high affinity to the target pathogens (Salmonella, Yersina, Listeria and Campylobacter), to allow the simultaneous, rapid and accurate detection of the key pathogens in the pork industry. This combination of technologies will improve limit of detection. This will allow meat producers, such as abattoirs and meat-processors, to immediately take appropriate remedial action, significantly reducing risk of cross contamination and the possibility of pathogens entering the food chain.
