EUPHRESCO 30/09/16 Test performance study of LAMP assays (QDetect+) September 30, 2016 Report Open Access Boonham, Neil; Maes, Martine; Mulholland, Vince; Olmos, Antonio; Schoen, Cor; Schenk, Nathalie; van de Vossenberg, Bart A test performance study (TPS) involving 26 European laboratories was conducted to evaluate the robustness and reliability of loop mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) assays.
These assays were for the detection of the quarantine listed species Liriomyza huidobrensis (a leaf mining insect) and Clavibacter michiganensis subsp. sepedonicus (CMS, a bacterial potato pathogen). The L. huidobrensis assay performed well with the main challenge being the interpretation of the results from non-target genera and DNA extraction from small insect parts. Many participants had problems with contamination of the CMS LAMP assay, and a decrease in the limit of detection for the assay was found.

MICROBIOL 12/01/15 Rapid methods for the detection of foodborne bacterial pathogens: principles, applications, advantages and limitations. Introduction Foodborne diseases have become a major public health problem worldwide due to the significantly increased incidence of foodborne diseases over the last 20 years (Oliver et al., 2005).
Although it is difficult to estimate the global incidence of foodborne diseases as some of the cases are under-reported especially in developing countries, but the increased incidence of foodborne diseases were reported in many parts of the world (Van de Venter, 2000). For instance, the outbreak of foodborne disease in Taiwan increased rapidly from 121 in 1995 to 177 in 1996 and since then the incidence keep rising (Chiou et al., 2000). According to report from Centers for Diseases Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately 48 million people in the United States get ill, 128000 people are hospitalized and 3000 people die annually due to foodborne diseases despite United States has the safest food supplies in the world (Oliver et al., 2005; Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2011).

ITALIAN JOURNAL OF FOOD SAFETY - 2016 - FLOQSwabTM: optimisation of procedures for the recovery of microbiological samples from surfaces. Abstract The FLOQSwabTM is a specimen collection device worldwide recognised for its superior performance in the clinical diagnostics.
The aim of this work was to evaluate FLOQSwabTM for the recovery of microbiological samples from surfaces compared to the traditional swab (rayon tipped swab) as per ISO 18593:2004 standard. The FLOQSwabTM, thanks to its innovative manufacturing technology, allows improving the efficiency of recovery and release of analyte. The study has been divided into two experiments. In the first experiment the two swabs were evaluated for their capacity to recover and release the analyte (three different bacterial loads of Escherichia coli). Keywords Swab; Environmental contamination; Sampling. FOOD SAFETY NEWS 14/12/17 Lab robots crucial for end-to-end food safety data systems. Next generation sequencing is beginning to replace traditional DNA methods in food safety testing.
As this trend continues, sequencing will no longer be the time intensive process it once was. Laboratories will be limited by how quickly they can prepare samples, not how quickly they can sequence them. Automation will, therefore, play an increasingly critical role in the evolution of laboratory processes. Critical stages of the NGS (next generation sequencing) workflow are already being automated by a variety of hardware and software innovations. Robotic solutions, for example, play an important role in addressing the substantial bottlenecks created by humans preparing lab samples.
In the next two to three years, automation of a different kind will help us to fully leverage the precision and speed of NGS technologies.

Abstract The ability to generate high-quality sequence data in a public health laboratory enables the identification of pathogenic strains, the determination of relatedness among outbreak strains, and the analysis of genetic information regarding virulence and antimicrobial-resistance genes. However, the analysis of whole-genome sequence data depends on bioinformatic analysis tools and processes. Many public health laboratories do not have the bioinformatic capabilities to analyze the data generated from sequencing and therefore are unable to take full advantage of the power of whole-genome sequencing.
For laboratory surveillance of foodborne diseases, pulse-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) is currently the preferred method for typing bacterial isolates and is widely used in outbreak investigations and source tracking.

A titre d'exemples, nous pouvons citer les différentes situations de crises issues de contaminations ponctuelles par des bacilles du charbon (USA, automne 2001), des Légionnelles (Site industriel, Nord pas de Calais, fin 2003), des Salmonelles (charcuteries, Haute-Loire, printemps 2010), des souches entéro-hémoragiques d'Escherichia coli (graines germées, Allemagne, printemps 2011), ou plus généralement dans le domaine médical (infections nosocomiales et résistance aux antibiotiques). Cette problématique touche aussi bien des domaines liés à la sûreté nationale, que l'environnement, l'agro-alimentaire ou les pratiques de soins.
