Why are we undertaking this project?
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 on the food market.
What are we doing as part of this project?
Researching the non-culture methodology for identifying hazards and comparing these with the known and validated (but
slower) methods that are currently used.
