What if.. we could screen for contaminants on every item on a food production line?

Microbial contaminants are a risk on any food production line, so samples are taken from batches for lab testing. However, this can take several days, and the product may already be in the shops. New sensing technologies may allow us to test every item before it leaves the factory, saving wastage and protecting the health of the consumer.
