Rapid methods for hygiene determination

Project team: Craig Leadley
Member funded research project
Running: Jan 2018 – Dec 2020
Steering MIG: Processing, operations and preservation
Project Number: 144860
Proposal documentation

Many rapid hygiene test systems are already on the market, but limited independent assessment has been carried out to understand their capability and suitability to different environments, contaminant types and production technologies. Systems with the potential for providing an array of real-time information are also starting to appear in the food market, some of them not fully explored yet. Examples include rapid microbial indication, allergen surface residue, DNA detection methods and sensor technologies as ways to indicate or control contamination. The research will look mostly at non-microbiological methodology for identifying hazards present and compare these with known and validated methods that are currently used but take longer.

The project will provide members with factual information on how well different rapid methods for testing cleanliness work in real industrial situations.
