The Challenge With Conventional Diagnostic Kits
Today’s conventional diagnostic kits are not suitable for the food processing industry’s complexity and fast-paced environment. These methods fall short concerning speed, ease of use, and cost. Also, essential attributes such as specificity and sensitivity do not meet the desired requirements to effectively prevent and control food pathogens. In many cases, budgets limit the number of tests that could monitor the sheer number of potential contamination hotspots. In addition, logistics are complex because only trained staff can do the sophisticated analysis. Often, it takes external laboratories days to come back with results. And last but not least, food producers rely on someone else’s skills and interpretation before they can take action.
Health authorities have today the technical means to fully uncover chains of contamination from infected patients to products and factories. They are steadily tightening laws and guidelines to prevent and manage outbreaks.
Microbiological contamination of food causes expensive product recalls to the industry and is the source of foodborne illnesses. They affect more than 600 million people and cause more than 400’000 deaths each year. In addition, increased mobility, population growth, consumer awareness, and rising global trade are accelerating the spread of pathogenic microorganisms.
Simple, safe, and affordable on-site
At NEMIS, we understand the importance of rapid diagnostic kits and the need to provide meaningful data in a timely manner to act. Only the right screening tool can stop the spread of dangerous bacteria early enough.
NEMIS responds to the current challenge by offering a rapid, easy-to-use, and cost-effective testing technology for the laboratory-free detection of live bacteria. To date, no other detection test provides this unique and powerful combination of multiple benefits. In addition, the availability of precise and affordable tests allows for more extensive and frequent testing directly on-site, thereby providing vital information to prevent the propagation of dangerous bacteria, mitigating severe health risks to humans and animals. NEMIS’ unique value proposition empowers users to minimize risk by providing a unique lab-free detection system that is simple to use.
