  • DuPont is focusing its scientific innovation primarily on three challenges - Food, Energy and Protection. One in seven people on Earth goes to bed hungry each night. Ensuring that enough healthy, nutritious food is available for people everywhere is one of the most critical challenges facing humanity. By 2035, global demand for energy will increase by 36%. We will need to find new and cleaner energy sources and new ways to use our existing sources more efficiently. A growing population places increased pressure on people and the environment. One of our greatest challenges in the coming decades will be adequately protecting humanity and the world we share. Solutions to many of these global challenges can be found in science.

  • Illnesses on the rise globally In the U.S, at least 30 outbreaks associated with STEC in the last 25 years Worldwide, foods include sausage, ice cream, milk & lettuce Timeline 2009 and 2010 Pressure from consumers’ groups and members of Senate to regulate STEC as an “Adulterant”, similar to E. coli O157:H7 USDA cannot reach a decision until it has developed lab capacity to detect and isolate various STEC serogroups Qualicon responded before all others Engaged in Collaborative R&D Agreement (CRADA) with USDA ARS Sept 13, 2011 - USDA announces that regulations will go into effect in March 2012 Oct 3, 2011 – Qualicon releases BAX® System STEC suite Press release Wilmington, Delaware, October 3, 2011 DuPont Helps Food Industry Comply with New USDA Food Safety Policy BAX® System STEC Suite Provides Fast, Accurate Detection of Pathogenic E. coli “ DuPont Qualicon has introduced the BAX® System STEC Suite, a trio of real-time PCR assays that enable food processors, reference labs and government labs to rapidly and reliably detect the Shiga toxin-producing E. coli (STEC)... This suite of food safety tests was developed in collaboration with the Agricultural Research Service of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA ARS...” Shiga toxin-producing E coli (STEC) cause about 265,000 illnesses each year in the U.S. This PCR-based suite of tests detects 6 types of STEC identified by USDA as adulterants in raw beef. Developed in collaboration with USDA Agricultural Research Service Innovative solution to newly mandated testing program by the USDA Food Safety & Inspection Service Easy to use, automated system brings sophisticated molecular microbiology techniques into standard quality control labs without the need for expert training. Fast, accurate technology helps speed food to market with fewer recalls and less waste due to faulty test results
