Using Quality Tools and Metrics for Comparison of Error Potential in Pathogen Testing Methods

Roka Bioscience

Companies in the food industry have made significant strides in increasing the quality and safety of the food supply. The Food Safety Magazine, April/May 2012 issue notes that quality is defined differently within the food industry based on the customer.  Whatever the definition used, the business of quality in the food industry must be proactive.  With this in mind, the article goes on to review two programs and tools used to address quality and manage risk.  These are the Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) program and the Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA). A remarkable amount of focus and energy has gone into developing comprehensive HACCP plans that mitigate and control risk in order to ensure high quality standards are met within the food industry.   The FMEA is now seen as an important analysis tool to be used in conjunction with the HACCP to ensure quality and brand protection.

The FMEA is done to analyze the potential for error and define mitigation strategies where that risk is identified.  The importance of this tool and the need for diligent self-regulation in food testing laboratories is made more clear by an article publishe ...

Overcoming the challenges of pathogen testing in "difficult" foods

Dr. Chanelle Adams recently presented on difficult food matrices and their impact on food operations at the Western NY Food Industry Expo in Rochester, NY on March 24th. The session reviewed the unique needs of difficult food types, which may require labs to perform specialized sample processing leading to longer turnaround time or added cost to the client. In the worst case, challenging matrices may lead to inaccurate results, which could have far reaching impacts on food manufacturers. (37:48)
