Food Safety and Animal Health Diagnostics

Food Safety and Animal Health

samplesFood safety testing for the presence of pathogens, antibiotics and other contaminants is increasing worldwide. The burden of testing is also being pushed up the supply chain such that tests are increasingly required at the farm or feed suppliers.

  • Clarity’s own market research among major food producers¬†has identified an acute need for a range of easy to use and cost efficient farm diagnostic tests.
  • In its most recent Food Micro Report (2012), Strategic Consulting International reported that the most desired improvement to current micro testing practices requested by QC managers in food processing companies were faster time-to-results, lower cost and greater ease-of-use.
  • With increased testing levels in food plants QC managers want cost effective, versatile systems that can detect a range of food safety parameters, with minimal operational input and low training and maintenance costs.

The need for fast and sensitive diagnostics for food contaminants and animal disease has never been in more demand.

Clarity is developing a diagnostic technology to address this demand which is:

  • Exquisitely sensitive
  • Easy to use
  • Rapid
  • Portable
  • Cost effective

Portable diagnostics will allow faster and easier detection of diseases, zoonoses and contaminants, resulting in cost savings for food suppliers, and improvements in food safety and the welfare of livestock.
