Food Safety

Texas A&M AgriLife Research has an extensive assembly of excellence in food safety research, teaching, and outreach. This is reinforced by access to outstanding faculty who conduct pre- and post-harvest plant and animal research in state-of-the- art facilities such as the National Electron Beam Research Center. Our strength lies in our vast expertise that can readily pull together integrated solutions to address important food safety issues.

Texas A&M AgriLife faculty expertise spans the following detection focus areas relative to food safety and include: development and validation of novel detection technologies for detection of foodborne pathogens, toxins, and/or allergens through either pre-harvest or post-processing, validation of privately developed detection technologies for identification of food safety threats (biological, chemical, physical) and capability to engineer opto-electronic and other dedicated sensors for pathogen detection.
