The North American food safety testing market is growing significantly, driven by increasing outbreaks of food-borne illnesses and rigorous implementation of the food safety regulations to ensure the safety of food. The consumer demand for food safety has also been increasing the food safety testing market. Introduction of new and advanced technology for safety testing has been further helping in the growth of the market. The leading players in the food safety testing market include SGS SA (Switzerland), Bio-Rad Laboratories (U.S.), Intertek (U.K.), Eurofins (U.S.), and Bureau Veritas (France). The key players have been using strategies such as new product/service launch and merger & acquisition to strengthen their position in the market.

The North American food safety testing market involves testing for contaminants such as pathogens, toxins, genetically modified food, pesticides and other contaminants in food products such as meat & poultry products, dairy products, processed foods, fruit & vegetable, and other foods such as cereals, raw food materials, etc. The technology for safety testing include traditional and rapid technology methods such as convenience-based, PCR-based, immunoassay-based, and other rapid methods such as HPLC, GC, etc. In 2012, pathogen safety testing in food samples dominated the market with salmonella testing as the largest segment.

The food safety testing market is projected to grow from $3,707.7 million in 2012 to $5,640.1 million by 2018. In 2012, U.S. was the largest market for food safety testing with a share of 70%. In 2012, Canada was the second largest market followed by Mexico. In 2012, contaminant testing in processed food was the largest segment in North American market.In 2012, pathogen testing dominated the food safety testing market and is projected to be the fastest growing contaminant safety testing market during the forecast period of 2013 to 2018. In 2012, processed foods accounted for maximum pathogen testing in the market. E. coli testing segment is projected to be the fastest growing pathogen testing market during the same period. 

Pathogens are the leading cause of food borne poisoning or illness. In 2012, pathogen testing dominated the food safety testing market in which salmonella testing accounted for the major share. Food contamination and recalls due to salmonella contamination has led to increase in the salmonella testing. Increasing food contamination and outbreak of Shiga toxin-producing E. coli (STEC) poisoning is expected to increase E. coli testing in market. Food safety testing market is projected to increase at a CAGR of 7.3% by 2018.

In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Scott Davis, CTO of Embotics, will discuss how automation can provide the dynamic management required to cost-effectively deliver microservices and container solutions at scale. He will discuss how flexible automation is the key to effectively bridging and seamlessly coordinating both IT and developer needs for component orchestration across disparate clouds – an increasingly important requirement at today’s multi-cloud enterprise.
Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" ...
The essence of cloud computing is that all consumable IT resources are delivered as services. In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Yung Chou, Technology Evangelist at Microsoft, demonstrated the concepts and implementations of two important cloud computing deliveries: Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS). He discussed from business and technical viewpoints what exactly they are, why we care, how they are different and in what ways, and the strategies for IT to transi...
The Internet of Things is clearly many things: data collection and analytics, wearables, Smart Grids and Smart Cities, the Industrial Internet, and more. Cool platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Intel's Galileo and Edison, and a diverse world of sensors are making the IoT a great toy box for developers in all these areas. In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound e...
All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
Keeping pace with advancements in software delivery processes and tooling is taxing even for the most proficient organizations. Point tools, platforms, open source and the increasing adoption of private and public cloud services requires strong engineering rigor - all in the face of developer demands to use the tools of choice. As Agile has settled in as a mainstream practice, now DevOps has emerged as the next wave to improve software delivery speed and output. To make DevOps work, organization...

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
