The ability to rapidly detect viable pathogens in food is important for public health and food safety reasons. Culture-based detection methods tend to be laborious, time consuming and slow to provide results. Several culture-independent methods to detect viable pathogens have been reported in recent years, including both ELISA and PCR. Some of these newer methods, particularly immunomagnetic bases sample preparation followed by PCR show promise in terms of speed and sensitivity of detection.

This topic provides an overview of these two approaches, their food testing applications and discusses their future prospects in relation to detection of viable pathogens in food.
