Novel Emerging Pathogens
COVID-19 doesn’t require any introduction anymore in the world. This novel virus took down the world in a storm and a lot of economies are still struggling to come out of COVID pandemic. Similarly in the last decade, a number of foodborne, airborne, and waterborne outbreaks have occurred. Such uprisals have signified the importance of preventive approaches and programs throughout the end-to-end supply chain. Cultivator Phyto Lab offers all kinds of Pathogens and Novel Emerging Pathogen testing with a wide spectrum in its state-of-the-art laboratory with the most advanced technologies.
Pathogen testing at Cultivator Phyto Lab is done to prevent, inhibit, and eliminate food-borne illnesses and diseases. We strongly recommend that Pathogen testing should be done at all stages of food and beverage production to ensure complete safety. We propose rapid tests including antibody and DNA-based tests, microbiological tests, mycotoxins & yeasts tests, Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS), Shelf-life related studies, Hygiene parameters, Industrial Equipment Validations, and other characterization tests for microorganisms.
The world is facing a lot of food pathogenic outbreaks today. Some of the most prevalent reasons for such outbreaks are worldwide trade of raw & processed food, climate change, faulty supply-chain regulation, commodity shift, modern lifestyle, altercations in food production system, weakened immunity, and emergence of existing and newer mutated pathogens with time.
Some of the emerging food-borne pathogens are:
- Clostridium perfringens
- Staphylococcus aureus
- Escherichia coli and Coliforms – coli O157:H7
- Diarrheagenic Escherichia coli
- Staphylococcus aureus
- Bacillus cereus
- Clostridium perfingens
- Yeast and Mold
- Hepatitis A virus
- Non-O157 Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC)
- Arcobacter butzleri
- Helicobacter pullorum
- Cronobacter sakazakii,
- Klebsiella pneumoniae
- Vibrio parahaemolyticus
- Clostridium difficile
- Toxoplasma gondii
- Vibrio vulnificus
- Yersinia enterocolitica
- Trichinella spiralis
These irregularities and food borne pathogens can be avoided by simply testing food at various stages of production and packaging. Implementation of better hygiene practices can also contribute to avoidance of contaminants. Cultivator Phyto Lab adheres to all national and international compliance authorities in testing and identifying Existing Pathogens and Novel Emerging Pathogens.
