Choosing the best tool for pathogen detection doesn't have to be difficult
Every food company wants a pathogen detection method that is fast, reliable and easy to use. The quality control labs understand that PCR-based testing systems offer advanced science, with results that are faster than culture and more accurate than antibodies. But how are they to know which PCR system is best? For one company, the choice was easy.
