Project code: MRI-FL-08-1030
Contract period: 01.01.2001 - 31.12.2015
Purpose of research: Basic research

Traditional microbial analyses of meat and meat products are time and labour intensive and, for these reasons, they are unable to meet current demands in the meat industry. Therefore, reliable molecular based rapid methods (identification by MALDI-TOF, specific PCR with and without prior enrichment, lateral flow systems, etc.) are developped for the qualitative and quantitative detection of microorganisms in combination with suitable matrix-specific sample preparations to replace lengthy cultural methods. (in close cooperation with the MRI Department of Microbiology and Biotechnology)
