Metagenomics is a recent discipline based on high-throughput sequencing technology. This technology allows the full DNA of micro-organisms present in an ecosystem (bacteria/yeasts/moulds) to be identified. The most studied ecosystems at the moment are intestinal flora, soils and marine environments. Quality Partner has recently invested in this technology with the aim of applying it to the agro-food sector. In fact, agro-food metagenomics offers revolutionary possibilities and represents a complete change in technology compared to traditional methods of analysis.
This technology provides an answer to many problems encountered by professionals in the agro-food industry:
All the actors in the food chain are concerned by this new technology, whether they are manufacturers wanting to provide a successful and innovative product, wholesalers needing to optimise their supply chains, or control organisations ensuring the micro-biological quality of foodstuffs.
Quality Partner is now in a position to provide a unique offer based on the expertise of a multi-disciplinary team (molecular biologist, taxonomist, foodstuffs technologist). This new offer will fulfil the requirements of an ever-growing market by making products more competitive and of higher quality.
