SwissDeCode is launching a system that can reduce losses in a factory

SwissDeCode is launching the RAPID INTERVENTION SERVICE, which brings a team of experts to companies in the food industry going through an outbreak. Embracing a "pit-stop" mentality; a fast, precise and relevant audit is performed to help find the source of contamination.

The "SIAL Innovation" selected service is built on SwissDeCode's DNAFoil technology and will initially help find the source of pathogen-related contaminations, the most common cause of food recalls in Europe.

 “The RAPID INTERVENTION SERVICE provides a valuable support for food manufacturers who are distressed and under pressure to solve a food safety crisis as quickly as possible", explained Brij Sahi, CEO and Co-Founder of SwissDeCode.

Some of the benefits that the RAPID INTERVENTION SERVICE brings are:

-it detects the targeted DNA even after standard cleaning;

-it differentiates between live and dead pathogens, allowing to put results into context and make relevant decisions;

-it provides results in one shift, informs the company in a press release.

Once the source is found, SwissDeCode's experts will continue to work with the company to improve their monitoring strategy by combining the DNAFoil technology with their processes. Timings, relevance and efficiency are improved to minimize the risk of another outbreak in the future. In 2017, in Europe alone, there were 300 alerts issued related to the presence of pathogens in food.
