  • 1. DuPont Food Innovations > The Challenge > The Solution > Cases > Why DuPont The BAX® System from DuPont Qualicon Pathogen detection the easy way Testing for pathogens is vital to the food industry, but traditional culture methods can be time-consuming and require highly skilled technicians for accurate interpretation. Newer antibody-based methods are faster but may not detect low concentrations, or they can cross-react with related bacteria to produce false positive results, which lead to re-testing that, can dramatically slow time to market. The BAX System from DuPont Qualicon, however, uses advanced molecular science to ® focus on the genetic structure of the target microbe. This automated DNA-based method combines speed and ease of use with unprecedented performance to reliably detect pathogens, such as Salmonella and E. coli O157:H7, in food and environmental samples.
