Podcast: Targeting Pathogens with UV LED

Food Packaging Disinfection

Listen to podcast

In this BONUS episode of Food Safety Matters, we speak to two experts from Phoseon. Theresa Thompson is an application scientist for Phoseon’s Life Science Group. Jay Pasquantonio is the strategy director for Phoseon’s Life Science Group. Theresa and Jay discuss the use of ultraviolet light-emitting diode (UV LED) technology to reduce pathogens in food.

In this BONUS episode of Food Safety Matters, we speak to Phoseon about:

  • Phoseon’s use of UV LED disinfection systems to reduce and control foodborne pathogens from food products and contact surfaces
  • The potential to use UV LED to treat beverages, produce, packaging, and various surfaces
  • The overall benefits of using UV light, particularly in food processing
  • Environments and instances that are ideal (and not ideal) for Phoseon’s food safety applications
  • Why traditional or more aggressive methods to eliminate pathogens may not be desirable
  • The risks of purchasing UV LED equipment and systems from commercial market sellers
  • Worker safety when using UV LED lights
  • Upcoming research and product innovation within Phoseon
