DuPont Qualicon Emerges as a World Leader in Food Safety Testing


Once a DuPont research & development initiative, DuPont Qualicon has become the global leader in automated DNA-based food diagnostics. Its portfolio of products offers a welcome alternative to traditional slow and laborious testing techniques with powerful, patented technologies that provide automated, standardized approaches to microbial detection and identification.

DuPont Qualicon pioneered the use of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) technology in food testing with the BAX® system, an award-winning innovation that can detect minute levels of bacteria with unprecedented precision and reliability. The RiboPrinter® system automates ribotyping technology to identify contaminating bacteria and their source from genetic fingerprints, much like human forensics.

Today, the U.S. Department of Agriculture Food Safety and Inspection Service uses the BAX® system for routine inspections, as do government labs in China and Brazil. Food companies on every continent depend on the BAX® system and pharmaceutical companies have discovered the benefits of the RiboPrinter® system for their quality control.

"DuPont Qualicon will continue developing integrated and innovative products,” said Kevin Huttman, president, DuPont Qualicon. “Our success and our satisfaction come from offering solutions that accelerate profitable and sustainable growth for our customers.”
