Increasing the Safety and Shelf Life of Idaho Commodities
Maintaining the expected quality and safety of food and agricultural products could be challenged by chemical and biological contamination. Of particular concern is the threat of food poisoning. To protect the safety of the food supply and to assure continued high quality of agricultural commodities, it is essential to have methods available for predicting the potential contamination of foods and other agricultural commodities. The purpose of this project is to develop bioelectronic detectors that can quickly detect the presence of microbial pathogens in food projects.
