Quick test for detection of bacterial contamination in food

Because this is a platform technology, it can easily be extended to the detection of other unwanted bacteria and contaminants (fungi, toxins, allergens, pesticides, heavy metals, etc.). A follow-up has already started in the SIPORE project. FinancingInterreg Vlaanderen Nederland
