With strain level information available in hours instead of days, manufacturers can make actionable decisions rather than retrospective assessments.

As food safety programs continue to mature under increasing regulatory and consumer pressure, food safety testing standards are evolving.
Companies can no longer rely solely on binary pathogen detection tests. Traditional methods that further characterize pathogens are disparate, time-consuming, and often require pure isolates and trained technicians. There are software solutions that can visualize contamination patterns on a virtual map, but these tools lack resolution at the strain level.
A new era of genomics-based diagnostic tools and software provides a more accurate and in-depth understanding of microbial contamination, helping to drive root cause analysis and source eradication. This helps factories reduce inefficiencies and resume production faster, improving profitability. However, barriers still exist for food manufacturers interested in adopting such tools for routine use, including cost, complexity, and legal issues.
This webinar will discuss how these barriers can be overcome by seamlessly combining once distinct aspects of pathogen detection, characterization, and visualization of contamination patterns in a food manufacturing environment. Automation has simplified complex workflows and bioinformatics analysis. Reduced costs and time to results have made a once inaccessible solution more practical. With strain level information available in hours instead of days, manufacturers can make actionable decisions rather than retrospective assessments.
Join Sasan Amini, CEO of Clear Labs; and Mike Robach, CEO of The Robach Group LLC, for the live webinar on Monday, March 14, 2022 at 11 a.m. EDT (3 p.m. GMT/UK).
