In business, time is often valuable and especially if you are handling a delicate product with a short shelf life, such as fresh fish. In an interesting project that has been worked on at IFL, in collaboration with Danmarks Fødevarforsikring, work was done to significantly shorten the time that elapses until the results of microbiological measurements of marine products are available.

This is said on website Of the ACP Fund. A new technology called "Real-Time PCR" offers a much shorter response time than previously possible, in addition to the fact that with "RT-PCR" a similar method is being applied to all types of bacteria and therefore there is great potential for automatic generation. diagnostic equipment.

In 2005, the project called Rapid microbial measurements and is Eyjólfur Reynisson its project manager. The project is funded by the AVS, Norfa and Leonardo da Vinci funds, as well as IFL. 

It is worth mentioning that an article by Eyjólf and his colleagues was recently published in the scientific journal Journal of Microbiological Methods.  Read the article

As mentioned earlier, the project was funded by IFL, AVS, Norfa, the Leonardo project, Danish Agri Business, the EU project Food-PCR 2, MedVetNet and the CampyFood project of the Nordic Innovation Fund.
