Randox Tests Guarantee Food Safety

GLOBAL - Think back over the last 60 minutes. What did you do? Randox Food Diagnostics probably guaranteed the safety of beef in Brazil, Chinese pork and honey in Ukraine, to name only a few.

That is because every hour of every day, 96 Randox Food Diagnostics tests protect consumers and the food they eat.

The company develops and manufactures technology and products for drug residue screening and quality analysis. Tried and tested immunoassay techniques form the basis of its products servicing the meat & seafood, dairy and honey industries detecting drug residues such as antimicrobials, anthelmintics and growth promoter families. It covers all the major antibiotic families including sulphonamides, quinolones, tetracyclines & nitrofurans, and it has recently entered the mycotoxins market.

Randox Food Diagnostics’ growing list of products are trusted by some of the world’s most recognisable companies and increasingly government and regulatory labs are adopting our Biochip Array Technology as a screening tool.

Developed through a decade of research and an investment of UK£200 million, Biochip Array Technology detects up to 22 different analytes from a single sample, adding huge potential for savings via time and cost.

The company's ELISA kits offer excellent performance in terms of fast sample turn-around, minimal sample preparation, extended shelf-life, precision for both Inter and Intra precision up to 15 per cent and low limits of detection.

With controls on food safety becoming ever more complex, having the right technology is key. That is why over the next 60 minutes, the company's products might protect seafood in Viet Nam, screen honey in India or test milk in China.

The challenge is global, and with 96 tests used every hour – and so is Randox Food Diagnostics.
