US Company Hygiena Acquires Biomedal Food Safety Division
Hygiena, a US company that specializes in rapid food safety and environmental sanitation testing, announced the successful addition of Biomedal’s Food Safety division to its portfolio. Biomedal Food Safety, acquired from Seville, Spain-based Biomedal, offers a wide range of allergen tests including the GlutenTox® product line which contains the highly specific G12 antibody which specifically detects the most immunogenic component that is responsible for gluten intolerance. GlutenTox® Pro holds the certification of the AOAC Research Institute for Performance Tested methods (certificate no. 061502).
The new division will continue to be based in Seville, and be named Hygiena Diagnóstica España S.L. It will provide more than 20 specific allergen tests available as a sensitive enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) format or a simple dipstick format that can be easily used to verify cleaning efforts and test finished products.
