Xema is also active in designing diagnostic products for food control. In this area, we focus on three main issues:
1. Determination of normal, but undesirable constituents in food (meat in vegetarian products, allergic components, pork meat in food, etc.).
2. Determination of antibiotics and other LMW substances in food.
3. Determination of fungal contaminants in food.
