Abstract

The food chain is vulnerable to natural, accidental and deliberate contamination. Therefore security and safety of food has a major role in the global public health. Several methods are needed to safeguard biosecurity and preparedness of the complex food chain. Rapid and reliable methods are needed to detect foodborne pathogens and trace their contamination routes. Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) based tools provide an opportunity for rapid detection of target microbes. Anti-tampering and indicators can provide information about integrity of the packaging and authenticity of the products. Preventive actions and detection methods can be used to assure safety and traceability of the food chain.
