Auburn: Technology Ensures Food Safety, From Farm to Table
Auburn College of Agriculture researchers look to find a cost-efficient system to monitor pathogens through the food supply chain.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture awarded 11 universities grants to look into nanotechnology. As one of the institutions that received funding, Auburn has taken a biological approach to its research.
The goal is to create a biosensor in the form of a handheld monitor that will be affordable and easy to use. Another objective is to allow the system to detect multiple strands of pathogens at once.
