A NEW in­ven­tion by an Is­raeli start-up will bring a whole new mean­ing to burger and chips. MS-Tech is de­vel­op­ing a hand-held food safety tech­nol­ogy chip for con­sumers. Called the FoodS­can 3000 — one of sev­eral sen­sors be­ing de­vel­oped by MS-Tech — it is a food con­tam­i­na­tion de­tec­tor, which will give read­ings of food items to make sure they do not con­tain danger­ous lev­els of bac­te­ria. Within sec­onds, it will de­tect pathogens such as sal­mo­nella, E. coli and lis­te­ria. Doron

Shalom, the com­pany’s CEO, hopes the de­vice will be part of the food in­spec­tion ar­se­nals of gov­ern­ments over the next year and will then be­come avail­able to dis­trib­u­tors, re­tail­ers and, even­tu­ally, con­sumers.
