Automated PCR-based Solutions for Pathogen Screening in Food Safety Testing


Reliable results in food safety testing depend equally on highly efficient sample preparation and sensitive and accurate analysis of sample DNA. Automated solutions provide high process safety and standardization, as well as minimized hands-on time and faster time-to-result. This webinar focuses on an automated pathogen screening workflow for food safety testing. The solution presented here uses the innovative QIAsymphony RGQ instrument in combination with QIAGEN´s mericon kits for sample preparation and pathogen detection.
