At Aconsa we use PCR testing to amplify and analyse specific DNA sequences. This allows us to detect pathogenic micro-organisms reliably and quickly (Salmonella, Listeria, Legionella, E. coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Campylobacter).
Micro-organisms transmitted through food or water constantly change as they adapt to different forms of stress. As a result, laboratories like Aconsa incorporate state-of-the-art molecular methods that help to detect pathogens.
The molecular biology techniques employed by our professionals alongside our laboratory’s technological capabilities allow us to carry out the laborious process of detecting concentrations of viable legionella cells in cooling towers, as well as in the surface water of lakes, rivers, ponds and hot springs.Saber más
Thanks to molecular biology we can detect the presence of bacteria such as Salmonella, Listeria or E. coli in food products and other emerging pathogens such as Campylobacter. These techniques offer a substantial advancement in the prevention and management of food-related risks.Saber más
There are micro-organisms present in drinking, recreational and bathing waters, among others, which can negatively affect health. Such is the case of faecal matter filtered through a spring, or Enterococcus intestinalis in bathing water at the beach. Fortunately, these can be identified thanks to microbiology.Learn more
Aconsa is a chemical and microbiological laboratory certified by the ENAC to perform analysis and controls in the food, industrial and health fields, among others.
