The DNA Diagnostic challenge:

“PCR Diagnostic Kits – The Future of Food Safety”

The Challenge

One of the biggest challenges to the food industry in recent years has been food quality and microbiology, with global consumers demanding higher levels of food safety from the food industry. Consumers are increasingly looking for safer options from their food suppliers, demanding the ultimate combination of technology, credibility and convenience. DNA Diagnostic has market leading technical insight into the world of PCR test kits, and we need you to help us be part of shaping the future of innovative food safety testing solutions for the global food industry.


Innovative food safety solutions will play a key role in helping future food companies to produce safe, sustainable, convenient and cost efficient products, and food safety is also an important branding tool for food companies to overcome growing skepticism regarding industry processed food from consumers globally. Achieving high standards for food safety is multifactorial and an important part is the ability to obtain fast and precise test results. Future food testing will be more transparent and precise, flexible and alternative types of test to connect with QA/QC departments and consumers on a local, personal or emotional level.
