Due to several advantages over traditional cultural detection of pathogens, like shorter analysis times, less hands-on time and higher specificity, real-time PCR based methods represent a valuable alternative in foodborne pathogen detection. Eurofins GeneScan Technologies has developed PREraser BACGene, which eliminates free DNA from samples and thereby reduces the number of unconfirmed positive PCR results without having a negative effect on living pathogens.
The PREraser BACGene treatment is an optional step after enrichment and prior to lysis, easy to integrate into the workflow of the BACGene real-time PCR kits. The application has been accepted for certification by AOAC for specific kits. According to results, PREraser B
Eurofins Tecna is pleased to announce that the novel ELISA kits for the quantitative detection of deoxynivalenol H2DON and B ZERO H2DON ELISA have been validated on new matrices!
The kits are two fast (20 minutes), quantitative, sensitive immunoenzymatic assays in microplates (200 ppb detection limit), with a wide measuring range (up to 8 ppm), accurate and precise. They don't require the use of any solvent in the preparation of the samples.
Since the lauch of these new products both k

Eurofins Tecna is pleased to announce the new ELISA H2DON and B ZERO H2DON kits. These kits don’t require the use of any solvent in the preparation of the sample.
The kits are two fast (20 minutes), quantitative, sensitive immunoenzymatic assays in microplates (200 ppb detection limit), with a wide measuring range (up to 8 ppm), accurate and precise.
B ZERO H2DON kit uses the same reagents as the H2DON kit, but the calibrators are not included in the kit and should not be loaded. The dosage curve is virtually supplied in the kit certificate and can be used
Eurofins GeneScan Technologies GmbH and UgenTec announced a collaboration on the development of assay plugins for Eurofins GeneScan Technologies’ portfolio of molecular biology kits on UgenTec’s real-time PCR analysis software platform, FastFinder.
In the collaboration, UgenTec will develop artificially intelligent software components for Eurofins GeneScan Technologies’ assays, called assay plugins - which are deployed into the FastFinder analysis software used in testing labs. The assay plugins will cover DNA extraction kits, the detection of pathogenic microorganisms and viruses as well as genetically modified organisms (GMOs), animal and plant species kits from the GeneScan portfolio.
FastFinder Analysis is a software module using artificial intelligence to support the analysis and interpretation of qPCR data. It allows diagnos
Despite viral outbreaks declining, they remain one of the most important areas of consideration when it comes to food safety. These viruses are highly resistant to environmental factors and are infectious at very low doses. Their presence in foods or during food production can have devastating consequences. Christoph Bahrdt, Business Development Manager at Eurofins GeneScan gives an insight into foodborne diseases associated with viral infections and introduces VIRSeek Solution, an efficient virus extraction and detection tool recently developed by GeneScan.

May has been a busy month for our team in Australia. First up was an impressive trade show Ozwater’19, a water conference and exhibition followed the week after by an outstanding and informative Allergen Management Symposium, both held in the vibrant city of Melbourne. Many new introductions and great relationships as a result, thanks to the dynamic audience and to the organizers of both these successful events! Don't hesitate in reaching out to our team for any additional information on our comprehensive range of products: firstname.lastname@example.org
We are proud to announce the launch of our brand new VIRSeek Solution. The VIRSeek Solution is an ISO-compliant workflow for the detection of viruses in food and drinking water. The solution is comprised of five kits, which cover all steps from RNA extraction to real-time RT-PCR detection of hepatitis A virus, norovirus genogroups I & II as well as the process control murine norovirus.
The VIRSeekSolution consists of the following kits:
• VIRSeek Food Hepatitis A Virus
• VIRSeek Food Norovirus Genogroup I
• VIRSeek Food Norovirus Genogroup II
• VIRSeek Food Murine Norovirus (MNV) Process Control
• VIRSeek RNAExtractor Food
The kit was designed as a real-time PCR-based method for the specific and exclusive identification of Salmonella enterica subsp. salamae serotype Tranoroa in food, feed and environmental matrices. Presumptive positive results for Salmonella spp. can be re-tested rapidly and reliably for S. Tranoroa, directly from the original lysates, allowing for proper process control mechanisms to be implemented without a high demand of additional hardware and consumables. It effortlessly integrates into the BACGene Salmonella spp. workflow and requires no separate lysis steps. Shop the kit online
