Solving the Food Spoilage Problem

There are more ways to find spoilage microorganisms than you think.


Feeding the world safe and abundant food is our collective mission. While food safety tends to receive the most attention, a quarter of all food supply is lost to microbial contamination. 

The challenge we face is the detection of spoilage microorganisms. The most common tools haven’t been upgraded for decades while our understanding of food spoilers continues to grow. Moreover, a broad range of these spoilers is often grouped into one generic test result, leaving operators without important details.

Combining traditional detection methods with fine-tuned custom diagnostics, bioMérieux’s Predictive Diagnostics Innovation Center is improving spoilage detection and protecting the bottom line for leading companies around the world. Download the food spoilage case study below for more information.
