Background on Food Safety

Food safety means that food is non-toxic and harmless, meets the required nutritional requirements, and does not cause any acute, subacute or chronic harm to human health. Food-borne diseases are caused by many factors, when they enter the human body, they can cause disorders of the human immune system, causing nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, diarrhea and other symptoms, and even poisoning. Food safety is no less important today than ever, rapid food safety testing has gradually penetrated into people's lives. Food safety test kits play a unique role in a specific period of time in food safety management. Food safey testing helps food science laboratories improve food safety and risk management, minimize the time and cost of microbiological and molecular food testing, and ensure the reproducibility of results.

Classification of Food Safety Test Kits

According to the classification of test substances, food safety test kits can be divided into the following categories:

  • Veterinary drugs: veterinary drugs are mainly divided into four categories: general disease control drugs, infectious disease control drugs, internal and external parasitic disease control drugs, and growth-promoting drugs.
  • Pesticides: there are many types of pesticides, mainly organophosphorus, carbamate, organochlorine and pyrethroid pesticides.

Advantages of Food Safety Test Kits


Detection sensitivity, that is the lowest detection limit is lower; the detection speed is getting faster and faster, and online detection can be realized.


The continuous improvement of selectivity and the application of various high-tech have made it possible to directly extract pollutants for detection in complex mixtures.


It can operate multiple kits to measure multiple components at the same time, which greatly shortens the detection cycle.


The cost of testing is getting lower and lower, the reagent components are safe.
