ELISA-Microbiology Laboratory

Research and studies
  • incidence of pathogenic microorganisms in food
  • sanitation and food hygiene tests for food processing units (technological flow, work equipment, packaging materials, personnel)
  • studies for determinating the shelf life of food products
  • determination of mycotoxins, allergens, antibiotics, vitamins using the ELISA enzyme immunoassay in cereals, feed and food
  • consulting in the design of the testing program for various analyzes and food matrices or in other fields of microbiology (hygiene practices on technological flow, identification of risks on flow)
  • development and implementation of systems to reduce microbial contamination
  • research on establishing the shelf life of food products and improving their quality
  • approach and development of natural food preservation techniques
  • evaluating the use of natural antimicrobial compounds for food spoilage control and increasing stability
  • elaboration of quantitative and qualitative models in order to inactivate the growth and microbial contamination but also of the mycotoxin content in cereals and food products
  • research on controlling the presence of food allergens (gluten) in special purpose foods
  • controlling fermentations used in the food industry: composition of fermentation environment, establishment and optimization of fermentation technologies, using fermentation and the products obtained from fermentation in improving the food quality
