Microbiological Food Safety

The ‘Microbiological Food Safety’ Research Group consists of a diagnostics laboratory and several research laboratories. In the diagnostics laboratory, food is analysed to determine hygiene parameters and pathogenic bacteria counts. In addition, salmonella testing is conducted as part of official feed inspection. Priorities are the dynamics of antibiotic-resistant bacteria along the food chain, the diversity of STEC strains, and controlling mastitis in cattle.
