The food industry sector will broadly profit from this project. The primary focus will be on the detection of environmental Listeria which is a serious risk at food processing plants. In addition, detection procedures will be developed for other microbial populations as well. The innovative developments in the project will be valuable to the scientific community, since the sample pretreatment procedures and the BiosparQ technology will be applicable in many other sectors as well; the project will boost scientific developments in other sectors. The society will profit from a substantially better detection procedure for environmental Listeria, resulting in less food products being contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.
