Yarok Microbio has strong value propositions for all stakeholders along the food supply chain.
Growers and processors gain manufacturer and retailer confidence with on-site testing.
Food manufacturers can avoid recalls, business losses, lawsuits, etc., and reduce costs by fast testing raw materials.
Outsourced laboratories serving the industry can add a competitive advantage to their offering.
Retailers can protect brand equity by monitoring their suppliers.
FAST TESTING TECHNOLOGY
BASED ON A NEW BIOTECHNOGICAL APPROACH
Current testing methods are too slow for detecting dangerous bacteria like:
Results from traditional tests take days.
So-called “rapid” test may take 18-72 hours and are highly prone to false positive results.
By the time results come in, fresh food and produce are marketed – even consumed.
Current testing time-frames are insufficient to avoid:
Consumer health hazards
Cancellation of contracts with retail chains
1 OUT OF 2 RECALLS IS DUE TO BACTERIA.
TODAY’S TESTS ARE TOO SLOW.
RESULTS COME IN ONLY AFTER PRODUCTS GO OUT.
A BREAKTHROUGH NEW TECHNOLOGY
RESULTS IN 45 MINUTES - INSTEAD OF DAYS
Yarok has developed a new technology for ultra-fast microbiological tests: results in 45 minutes instead of days, with final bacteria absence assessment within a production shift time-frame, before fresh food exits the production facility.
IMPLEMENTATION IN THE PRODUCTION CHAIN
Yarok Microbio’s fast tests can be deployed at multiple nodes along the food supply chain.
For example, in agriculture, testing can be conducted near the field (“lab-in-a-van”), at raw material warehouses, in production facilities, and at retailer distribution centers.
