We are on the verge of an industry-wide technology shift. Next-generation sequencing (NGS) platforms are beginning to replace legacy methods of food safety testing, like PCR. But before this new technology becomes the standard, confusion around NGS must be cleared up.

Specifically, what is NGS? And how can it be used?

Our webinar will explore the various applications and use cases of NGS, such as targeted DNA sequencing – ideal for routine pathogen screening.

We will also:

  • Explore the benefits of NGS for food safety
  • Expand on the various applications of NGS in the food industry
  • Explain why WGS is not the right methodology for routine pathogen testing
  • Discuss how the food industry can benefit from NGS for routine pathogen testing
