• Introduction

    Food supply worldwide is under constant threat and effective test products that can ensure food safety are in demand. Microbial pathogens such as bacteria, viruses, environmental toxins, food allergens and adulterants, residues of drugs and agricultural chemicals can harm consumers if unchecked. In some countries, testing for Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) is also conducted to ensure food authenticity

    Although pathogen testing is still the most dominant segment of food testing, Genetically Modified Organism (GMO) testing is the fastest growing food testing segment worldwide.

    The purpose of this report on Food Safety Testing is to provide insights into the large and ever growing food testing market and also covers the different testing technologies adopted worldwide.
    With outbreaks and contamination like salmonella, E. coli, listeria, and many more the food testing market has grown at a rapid pace. Testing concerns as well as this rapidly growing international trade in food has stimulated the demand for more food safety testing all over the world and has led to technological innovation in areas such as rapid testing and new test technologies such as PCR, Biosensors, Chromatography. Etc.

    Points covered:

    • Overview of the top companies involved in food testing and their publication trend
    • Focus on the contaminants spoiling foodstuffs
    • Trends for Current & emerging technologies in use for food testing and their patent activity
    • New and upcoming players involved in testing
