Safer food: New biotech uses DNA to screen for bacteria faster than ever

| January 14, 2013

Chicken meat and other foods will be able to be screened for bacteria even faster and more effectively than ever, thanks to breakthrough nanobiotechnology research. 

A team of scientists from The University of Queensland (UQ) and the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF) will leverage this new technology which enables DNA amplification on “microspheres” to rapidly detect and identify large numbers of different bacteria at once.
