Food Detectives Offer Olympic Protection

by The Editors on August 30, 2007

InvitrogenlogoCarlsbad’s Invitrogen Corporation (the life science technologies company) has been awarded the contract to provide “kits for detecting possible E. coli 0157 contamination in food at the 2008 Summer Olympic Games in Bejing, China.

“Bacteria, particularly E. coli, can present a serious threat to public health at a major global event such as the Olympics,” said Paul Kinnon, Vice President of Applied Market at Invitrogen. “Invitrogen’s Dynabeads® are a reliable, accurate solution for keeping food safe from dangerous bacteria and a perfect example of how technologies developed to further basic research can also be used to protect what we eat and drink.”

We’re wondering if they sell to the general public as a couple of those test kits would be the perfect thing to take our our next surf trip to mainland Mexico.
