Testing | April/May 2016 By Richard F.
Stier Most food, beverage and ingredient manufacturers need outside laboratory support at some time or another. This includes small, medium and large processors. The type of support processors require may be microbiological, chemical, nutritional, product development or any other type of analysis. So how should a food processor select a laboratory to support their operations? Whom to Select The first step when selecting a vendor is to define needs and develop a list of laboratories that can meet them. Once a company establishes their needs, the next step is to identify one and preferably several contract laboratories that will meet their needs. . • The laboratory is ISO 17025 certified • The laboratory is capable of doing the work needed using official and recognized methods • The work can be started as soon as the samples arrive, and results will be available as the testing protocol dictates • The laboratory will pick up samples.

BMC - DEC 2012 - Using metagenomic analyses to estimate the consequences of enrichment bias for pathogen detection. Enrichment procedures are often used to increase the probability of detection of a particular pathogen.
However, due to numerous factors including competition, differences in relative growth rates, growth inhibitors, and presence of bacteriophages,  enrichment results in a biased sample [i.e., enrichment bias; . Given the objective of enriching, this bias is expected. However, our limited understanding of non-target effects that occur through the enrichment process make it difficult to rely on specific enrichment methods as best diagnostic approaches.
Enrichment may have inherent and currently poorly understood consequences on resident microflora of a particular food or environmental sample, which may prove detrimental to the resolution of public health disease outbreaks. In this study, we employed next-generation sequencing and a 16S rRNA metagenomic approach to evaluate the ways in which enrichment changes the taxonomic profile of a sample. Table 1.

Now, Agricultural Research Service veterinary medical officer Jean Guard has developed an improved, cost-effective diagnostic tool and dataset for identifying various strains of Salmonella. The tool, called “Intergenic Sequence Ribotyping,” or ISR, is helping improve poultry production and human health internationally, because it helps control Salmonella’s presence in the field and in consumer poultry products. At present, there are other sequence, or DNA-based, methods for serotyping Salmonella. The traditional method, Kauffmann-White (KW), is expensive, is not based on DNA, and is not as accurate as ISR. “KW identifies a particular serotype in only 80 percent of cases,” says Guard.

FOOD_DTU_DK 03/06/15 Method provides more knowledge about harmful substances in food packaging. A new method for faster analysis of chemicals in paper and board food packaging materials has been developed in a PhD project at the National Food Institute, Technical University of Denmark.
The method can be used to increase existing knowledge of which chemicals in packaging materials are potentially harmful. Paper and board is used extensively in food packaging materials e.g. in baking paper, microwave popcorn bags and cereal packaging, which come into direct contact with the food. Despite the extensive use of this type of packaging there is only limited knowledge about both the chemical composition of the packaging and the toxicological effects of these chemical substances.
Screening strategy developed In her PhD project at the National Food Institute, Linda Bengtström has developed a screening strategy, which can be used to examine and assess the safety of food packaging materials made from paper and board.

1State Key Laboratory for Infectious Disease Prevention and Control, National Institute for Communicable Disease Control and Prevention, Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention, China 2Collaborative Innovation Center for Diagnosis and Treatment of Infectious Diseases, China 3Wuxi Center for Disease Control and Prevention, China AbstractDiarrhea can be caused by a variety of bacterial, viral and parasitic organisms. Laboratory diagnosis is essential in the pathogen-specific burden assessment. In the pathogen spectrum monitoring in the diarrheal surveillance, culture methods are commonly used for the bacterial pathogens’ detection whereas nucleic acid based amplification, the non-cultural methods are used for the viral pathogens. Different methodology may cause the inaccurate pathogen spectrum for the bacterial pathogens because of their different culture abilities with the different media, and for the comparison of bacterial vs. viral pathogens.

The hyperspectral fluorescence imaging system using ultraviolet-A excitation (320∼400 nm) was investigated to detect the bovine fecal contamination on the abaxial and adaxial surfaces of romaine lettuce and baby spinach leaves.

FRONTIERS IN MICROBIOLOGY 03/11/15 Multiplex detection of nine food-borne pathogens by mPCR and capillary electrophoresis after using a universal pre-enrichment medium. Introduction Bacillus cereus, Campylobacter jejuni, Clostridium perfringens, Cronobacter sakazakii, Escherichia coli, bacteria from the Enterobacteriaceae family (38 species, 27 genera), Listeria monocytogenes, Staphylococcus aureus, and Salmonella spp. are the most common bacterial pathogens whose detection is mandatory in many countries, depending on the specific food matrix (Chen and Jiang, 2014).
Most national food quality legislations define, for a given food matrix, the maximum level of allowed bacterial species and CFUs per gram. In most cases, these classical microbiology detection methods require a pre-enrichment stage using a non-selective medium (Crowley et al., 2011). FRONTIERS IN MICROBIOLOGY 22/12/15 Editorial: Exploring Bacterial Colonies in Solid Foods or Model Foods Using Non-Destructive Techniques. Bacteria are present in all foods, whether they are indigenous or inoculated. They can be beneficial to the quality of foods, responsible for food spoilage, or even pathogens. In solid food products, bacteria are immobilized. They thus grow as colonies entrapped within the food products or on the food surfaces.
In both cases, bacteria interact with the solid matrix, sometimes facing difficulties to access the nutrients as nutrients have to diffuse from the matrix to the bacterial colonies. Bacterial development can thus be impaired in solid matrices in comparison to planktonic growth.

About 1.4 millions of these deaths are children . It is suggested that waterborne diseases have an economic cost associated of 1 billion dollars annually only in the United States .
Worldwide, an economic loss of nearly 12 billion US dollars per year is estimated . Even though waterborne outbreaks (WBDOs) have been declining dramatically since the 1900s, the global burden of infectious waterborne disease is still considerable.

"These screening assays are alternatives to biological assays used by regulatory agencies," Schneider says. "The fluorescence assay is very rapid and detects the drugs when they are at or above the tolerance level. TRL methods require more cleanup, but have greater sensitivity. " Chemist Steven Lehotay, along with a previously visiting scientist, Michelangelo Anastassiades, developed the QuEChERS method, which stands for "quick, easy, cheap, effective, rugged, and safe" and is pronounced "catchers.
" The streamlined approach makes it easier and less expensive for analytical chemists to examine fruits and vegetables for pesticide residues. Lehotay says the method reduces procedural steps—and that lessens the chance for a mistake. "Several monitoring laboratories, including a few in FDA, are evaluating QuEChERS for use in routine monitoring and other approaches designed to safeguard the food supply," Lehotay says.
