West University of London researchers Ont, Ont. The salmon may have been found in the E. coli salad, which was much more than the delivery of food cabinets.
The well-developed western set E. coli detects the protein specific for bacteria 0157 and can display the result within 24 hours. The same strains of bacteria that cause disease in the United States and Canada.
The current test is based on cultures that can be derived from contaminated specimens and are passed on to the test, and the results are returned in two weeks.
At that time food was often sent to the market.
Fast & inexpensive & fast;
"Our goal is to bring the test closer to the eye," said Michael Ridder, a professor at the Western Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry and a research fellow at the Robert Blitz Research Institute.
"This technology is not only faster, but it's expensive, it's easy to use, and it can be at the refinery."
The West University Collection has been approved by Health Canada and is currently being sent to food processing plants in North America.
"We are characterized by these exceptional patented bacteria, because these bacteria are not bad, but we can identify specific bacteria that cause people's illness," Ridder said. .
"The goal is a safe food chain for all people to ensure public safety."
Most of the work on the development of the collection was funded by a federal non-profit organization Mitacs, which promotes academic and industrial cooperation.
Western researchers worked with the Toronto Biomedical Company and the London Businessmen, Craig Combe and Michael Brock.
