We spot spoilage and count bacteria in real-time.
Each year foodborne illnesses sicken 600 million people worldwide and more than 23 million people in European region . Bacterial inspection methods have an important role in preventing this problem, but the slowness of the present inspection techniques is a major hurdle. The current inspection techniques take 2 to 5 days to produce the results. At times the results come after the product is already in the market, resulting in food recalls. In Europe alone more than 27% of food recalls (913), in 2017, were because of bacterial contamination, which resulted in huge losses and bad brand reputation for companies.
To solve the issue we at Bosetein are developing a Real-time Bacterial Inspection Sensor – ‘ReBIS’ by means of utilizing optical technologies and Machine learning (ML) algorithms. Instead of inspecting few points on the meat item our Areal Scan sensor will enable the inspection of the whole meat item to determine freshness of every part by measuring microbial load on the surface and the ML based analytical software will ensure that the system can provide the results in real-time. The sensor is capable of inspecting the meat items on-line. more
