3M’s Clean-Trace™ Hygiene Monitoring System
| By 3M Food Safety
For the food and beverage industry, the goal is to deliver a safe, high-quality product. In a marketplace where food-borne illness can make or break your reputation, cleaning and sanitation are critical to protecting your business. But you can’t always see every health hazard. To verify cleanliness, you need more than an assessment with the naked eye. Microbiological tests are an option but require waiting 18 hours or more for lab results. You need a reliable, complete system to help you manage your hygiene monitoring process without the wait.

Identifying Meat Species Using RFLP-PCR and the QIAxcel® Advanced System
| By QIAGEN
In order to protect consumers’ interests it was necessary to introduce effective control and verify species composition of different food products. Molecular biology PCR-RFPL based method allows for unequivocal species identification in raw but also in processed food. By applying four restriction enzymes it was possible to distinguish meats from 15 animals, and in addition 6 animals served as contamination markers. The automated procedure presented, with the QIAxcel Advanced system, is fast (results available in less than 8h), accurate and therefore applicable in routine analyses.

Advantages of the QIAxcel System for Bacterial Genotyping
| By QIAGEN
Comparative Genomic Fingerprinting (CGF) is an advanced method for C. jejuni subtyping developed at Laboratory for Foodborne Zoonoses, Public Health Agency of Canada, Lethbridge, Alberta, CA. This method generates data that, while highly concordant with MLST, provides additional discriminatory power required for a range of epidemiologic applications, including case cluster detection and outbreak detection. Integration of the QIAxcel Advanced platform into the CGF workflow has led to a high-throughput and low cost subtyping assay that is suitable for deployment in the context of a national laboratory surveillance system.

High-throughput Detection of Shiga Toxin-Producing Escherichia Coli Using Multiplex PCR and the QIAxcel® System
| By QIAGEN
Complex 11multiplex PCR reaction can identify the seven major E. coli serogroups and the four main virulence factors in one PCR reaction. Separating multiplex PCR products with the QIAxcel CE system allows detailed, reliable and fast analyses of a complex samples containing many amplicons within a wide size range. Due to its fast turn-around time and its ability for automatic data interpretation, QIAxcel is an ideal machine for post-PCR separation, visualization and data presentation, especially for multiplex PCR runs in a high-throughput setting.

Identifying Allergenic Nut Species Using the QIAxcel System
| By QIAGEN
This study demonstrated the applicability of the QIAxcel Advanced System for analyzing PCR products as part of an allergen detection workflow. It provided rapid, reliable, and inexpensive identification of four nut species (almond, hazelnut, macadamia nut and peanut).

Speciation of Meat
| By Oxford Instruments
The traditional method for identification of meat species is Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) and/or gene sequencing which, although highly specific, takes several hours to complete. Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) tests are also used and although they are cheaper and quicker than the PCR tests, they are still more expensive per test than the Pulsar™ method.

Fatty Acid Composition of Triglycerides
| By Oxford Instruments
Pulsar is a high performance benchtop Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectrometer operating at 60MHz proton frequency. It uses a permanent magnet, so does not require liquid nitrogen, liquid helium, or compressed gasses, and it has no special health and safety requirements. It can be operated in a normal analytical laboratory by non-NMR expert laboratory technicians.

Determination of Food and Oil in Foodstuffs
| By Oxford Instruments
Fat and oil content is an important measurement of nutritional value and product quality for many foodstuffs. In particular, this value is widely used to determine energy content and to calculate the proportion of other components in foods (e.g. carbohydrates). In addition, the fat and oil content may significantly affect the texture, perceived quality and flavour of products. Thus, accurate measurements of the fat and oil content enable the manufacturers to achieve higher standards in nutritional characterisation and quality control of foodstuffs.

Determination of Solid Fat Content in Edible Oils and Fats by the Official Direct Method (AOCS Cd 16b-93)
| By Oxford Instruments
The measurement of Solid Fat Content (SFC) in edible oils and fats is an essential measurement in the bakery, confectionery and margarine industries. It is important that raw materials are characterised according to their melting profile, and rapid and convenient methods are required for doing this. The traditional method for measuring SFC has been dilatometry, but this is now regarded as slow, inaccurate and cumbersome. For a number of years, Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) has been the method of choice for determination of SFC.

Measurement of Oil and Water in Seeds According to ISO 10565:1998
| By Oxford Instruments
Accurate and fast determination of oil and water content is important to breeders, growers and buyers for determining the commercial value of oil-bearing crops such as rape (canola), sunflower, linseed, soya bean and groundnut. Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) offers a clean, rapid and accurate alternative to traditional wet chemical techniques and calibrations are much easier to maintain than for Near Infra-Red (NIR). NMR is also used for measuring oil yield in development of improved crop varieties and by seed crushers to measure oil content of the press cake and residues to determine extraction efficiency (ISO 10632:2000).

Measurement of Oil Content in Dried Snack Foods
| By Oxford Instruments
Measuring the oil content of dried snack foods is essential for quality control to ensure that the products meet their nutritional values specifications. The amount of oil used is also important in terms of the significant cost of the raw material and the effect it may have on the texture and perceived quality of the product.

Benchtop QA Systems from the NMR Specialists
| By Oxford Instruments
Oxford Instruments is a world leader in the application of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) techniques to QA applications. Thousands of first-generation Continuous Wave (CW) instruments were installed around the world, many of them still in use for measurements of fat in chocolate, oil in seeds and hydrogen in aviation fuel. In more recent years, pulsed NMR instruments have taken over from CW, and once again Oxford Instruments has led the way with the QP20, QP20+ and MQA series instruments. The MQC benchtop NMR analyser inherits this tradition, and brings new levels of practicality to QA applications.
