What we do
Improving food safety is an essential element of improving food security.
Many countries have established new standards and methods for regulating food safety to better control the risks.
The food contains hazardous agents or contaminants which affect the health of people. Such contaminants are detected at many different points in the food production process.
With the aim of ensuring consumer safety and regulatory compliance, Unisensor emphasizes the development of rapid, user-friendly and high-quality methods for multiplexing detection of different contaminants.
Once in-house developed and produced, our products are tested and validated with respect to the allowed maximum residue limits. Therefore, quality has become a precious element of each product to guarantee the reliability of the goods supplied to you in:
How we do it
Our products are based on technologies such as:
Based on several owned patents, all our dipstick tests are rapid, simple, reliable and also user-friendly. This technology shows various color lines in relation to the contamination level found in the sample. Multiplexing is Unisensor’s internationally-recognized specialty, which means detection of various contaminants in a single test.
New multiplexing and high throughput approach to detect the majority of residues in one single assay. Unisensor provides an automatic solution to detect the main antibiotic compounds at concentrations relevant to industries and authorities.
In order to meet our challenges and mission, we have been developing technologies that will revolution the approach of food testing, being continuously inspired by highly technological sectors such as the medical diagnostic.
New technologies such as microfluidic systems, surface plasmon resonance or fluorescence-based approaches are continuously investigated by our scientists.
