Innovative technology for milk safety

Making safer milk through innovative detection of bacteria and antibiotics

The EU-funded SAFEMILK project will develop a novel, complex biosensing assay for the evaluation of milk safety. The innovative solution will be focused on rapid and sensitive detection of bacterial pathogens and antibiotics that could occur in milk and represent a potential hazard for health. By applying surface acoustic waves, electrochemical and optical methods with the use of nanofabricated surfaces and immobilised DNA aptamers, SAFEMILK aims at creating an optimised complex assay for efficient assessment of milk safety, which could become a useful tool for the milk and dairy product industry.
