It’s an exciting, albeit challenging time for food safety professionals as new technologies continue to crop up. Next-generation sequencing (NGS), for example, was once a technology used primarily in the clinical space, but it is now changing the way food is tested and analyzed.

While NGS has become a popular topic among food safety professionals, there’s still confusion about what it is and how it will impact the food industry. This eBook clears up the confusion by providing an overview of NGS.

Download the Introduction to NGS for Food Safety Labs to learn the answers to questions like:

  • What is NGS?
  • How is NGS different from previous food safety technologies?
  • What are the three key applications of NGS for food safety? And how can they be used?
  • Why isn’t whole-genome sequencing the right solution for routine pathogen testing?
  • How can robotics and automation help your team?
  • What is the ROI of NGS?
