New ground breaking technology: Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS) reveals complete DNA make-up for improved food safety
Whole genome sequencing (WGS) enables us to better understand variations both within and between species. It provides the opportunity to stop outbreaks sooner, avoid additional illnesses and save companies money and time. This technology is used to identify pathogens isolated from food or environmental samples. WGS reveals the complete DNA make-up of an organism, enabling us to differentiate between organisms with a precision that other technologies do not allow. Whole genome sequencing (WGS) is the latest analytical approach to detect these emerging threats.
