Hygiene monitoring

Flow cytometric studies in milk

In delicate foods such as fruits, vegetables, milk, or meat microorganisms can cause great losses. But also in animal feed such as grain or silage, they are a considerable risk to animal and human health.

Our goal is to detect the contamination by spoilage and damage-causing microbes continuously through use of micro- and molecular-biological methods. Appropriate methods are also applied for monitoring the treatment  success of different conservation and sanitizing measures.

 

Current research

  • Determination of bacterial contamination using flow-cytometry and molecular genetic diagnostics
  • Biosensors for in-process detection of bacterial pathogens
  • Sensor-based early detection of molds and mycotoxins in grain processing
  • Hygienic design in processing treatments
