THE NEMIS EXPERT CORNER

Check out our expert corner, where industry experts and key opinion leaders from all around the world share their expertise and ideas about food safety, providing valuable and powerful insights.

As the world’s population is growing rapidly and living standards are rising, food production will have to double by 2050. While an estimated 1.4 billion pathogen detection tests are conducted every year, the food industry is aware that current testing practices and technologies lag behind the challenge. As a result, food safety is no longer a matter of simply testing but a matter of smart testing. The potential of cutting-edge technologies is maximized when paired with a comprehensive understanding of specific microbiological challenges.

The 3 Most Common Misconceptions
about Environmental Monitoring

The first misconception about environmental monitoring is the idea that if there is a pathogenic organism in the environment, you are going to find it by testing for it. That is simply not the case. Finding an organism in a factory is like trying to find one particular star in the whole universe. It is even more difficult because you do not have a telescope that allows you to spot where these particular stars (microorganisms) are as they are invisible to the naked eye.
