Food Testing with PCR with Andy Moreno
The potential benefits for food producers when they engage the screening of food production for human bacterial pathogens with quantitative, real-time Polymerase Chain Reaction technologies.
AME offers the following rapid, robust and validated PCR Assays to Food Safety and production Quality Assurance/Quality Control (QA/QC) managers.  The bacterial challenges AME can assist in testing for the presence/absence and quantitation are
-E. coli species Assay
-Shigatoxin/O157 E. coli (FDA BAM method)
-Listeria species Assay
-Salmonella species Assay

The implementation of these cutting-edge PCR technologies can economically be rapidly effected in food production facitilies. Discover how AME can assist your organization in engaging these tools today.

Enhanced Food Safety--From Ship and Pray to Test and Release with Andy Moreno.
Click: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/ame-foodtestingshow/2011/12/20/enhanced-food-safety-from-shippray-to-testrelease
Duration: 7 minutes, 18 seconds.

Traditional Food Production has been described as the "ship and pray" model due to the grab sampling of the finished product with culture testing.
The "Test and Release” mode of agricultural operations requires the surveillance of the entire process during several steps: irrigation water, pre-harvest, post harvest, wash water cycle, and finished products.  Should the surveillance program indicate an "alert" to the presence of a bacterial pathogen, then the lot should be withheld from the market.  A Test and Release” Surveillance program employs PCR tests to validate production with Statistical Process Control (SPC). This program allows for Periodic Testing of Randomized samples against established upper control limits.
