The food pathogen detection technology market involves of sales of food pathogen detection products and correlated services for the detection and eradication of foodborne pathogens from food. The Foodborne pathogens are bacteria, viruses, and parasites that be existent in food and are a cause of severe illness such as food poisoning. The food pathogen detection technology market is comprised in the improvement of food testing techniques that are utilized to identify any bacterial contamination in the food by pathogens and eradicating them to safeguard any unwanted incidents of foodborne illness, toxicity, or poisoning.
The Food Pathogen Detection Technology Market sheltered in this report is divided by technology into traditional (quantitative culture and qualitative culture), speedy (convenience, polymerase chain reaction, and immunoassay). It is also classified by food type into meat & poultry, dairy, processed food, fruits & vegetables, cereals & grains and by type: e. coli, salmonella, listeria, campylobacter, several others (norovirus and rotavirus).
During February 2019, BioMerieux attained Invisible Sentinel, a US-based food testing firm for a deal amount of USD 75 million. The deal is projected to bring innovative solutions to safeguard the food and beverage quality and to reinforce BioMerieux position in food pathogen testing and spoilage organism detection. Invisible Sentinel is a US-based firm comprised in delivering the DNA contamination tools for the food, beer, and wine industries.
Shortage of food control infrastructure in underdeveloped countries is a foremost restraint on the food pathogen detection technology market. The Food control infrastructure in many underdeveloped countries is generally inadequate owing to restricted resources and poor management. The Food control laboratories are often not well equipped and do not have proficient staff. Food control systems also face unwell advanced compliance guidelines in several developing countries.
For instance, during 2018, LexaGene Holdings Inc., a US-based research and biotechnology company, established the LX6 analyzer. The LX6 is an automated pathogen detection poidum based on genetic testing technology that is utilized to detect pathogens in food and water in less time and low cost. The LX6 has the competence to check for 22 dissimilar contaminants in water and food involving 2 species of vibrio, 3 species of salmonella, 4 species of shigella, and 2 species of e. coli. The corporates in the food pathogen detection technology are contributing in the advancement of fresh technologies such as genetic technology to allow the fast and effectual detection of pathogens.
Augment in the outbreak of foodborne illness around the world underwritten to the growth of the food pathogen detection technology market. According to a report published by WHO during 2018, almost every tenth person falls ill owing to pathogens every year and 33 million of healthy life are lost owing to foodborne syndromes. The Diarrhoea is the most common disease instigated by contaminated food and almost 550 million individuals (comprising 220 million children under 5 years of age) are affected by diarrhoeal syndromes. The increase in the occurrence of foodborne diseases amongst the global populace increased the requirement for food pathogen detection technology propelling the market’s growth.
