Quick adjustments of your production process thanks to Inhome qCPR
In a lot of industrial production processes, microbiology plays a very important role. This can be either a positive or a negative consequence. Let us for instance look at the production of cheese. During the production, unwanted bacterial growth can occur that leads to the formation of butyric acid. This leads to a decrease of the quality of the cheese. qPCR (quantitative Polymerase Chain Reaction) is a quick and acurate method to determine the presence of these unwanted bacteria. This rapid screening is possible in several phases of the production process. In this case for instance: testing the raw milk, the production water, the brine baths and the final product.
PCR technology is a broadly accepted technique that is widely deployed. The quantitative variant in particular, generates reliable data to monitor the biological processes in an industrial production process. In many cases, the use of traditional methods for analyses (for example culturing) can lead to less trustworthy data. When companies use qPCR analyses, most of the time these analyses are outsourced to an external laboratory. The lead-time is then dependent on shipment of the samples, and geographical place of the laboratory, while theoretically test results can be generated within less than three hours.Wouldn’t you rather be in control and have this technique available within the company?
