New System in Salmonella Detection Faster than Conventional Methods (EN)
A new device for detecting salmonella and other food pathogens within six hours or less has been developed by researchers from the Purdue University.

It makes it possible to routinely analyze food or water samples to screen for pathogens within a single work shift at food processing plants.
