As far as cross-contamination is concerned the freight of food raw material is potentially a weak link in the whole food production process. The logistics operators must ensure that the goods supplied comply with the specifications of the provider and customer. This quality control procedure helps tracing the origin of potential contaminations and reduce the risk of accepting contaminated goods.
Current technologies such as PCR-based testing and sequencing provide the controlling bodies with reliable tools to avoid cross-contamination and ensure raw material and finished products’ authentication and safety.
- Design and validation of in-vitro diagnostic and analysis tests to design cross contamination, authentication and safety tools.
