Expert Advice to Help You with Routine Food Testing in the Lab

Feb 17, 2016 | Blogs, Environmental / Industrial, Food / Beverage | 0 comments

Between 3-6 November 2015, the Recent Advances in Food Analysis (RAFA) 2015 Symposium took place in Prague, Czech Republic.

With over 800 scientists in attendance, visitors were treated to 132 lectures, 15 seminars, 6 workshops and over 500 posters presenting the latest in food testing methodology. Amongst the hive of activity was our very own Andre Schreiber, presenting on ways to ignite your routine testing methods with new and existing technology.

If you were unable to attend RAFA 2015 or would like to see Andre’s talk again you can watch the full 45-minute seminar below.

Be sure to leave a comment below as Andre will be able to respond to any questions or feedback, and if you’d like to read more about the talk you can download the full Igniting Your Routine Testing Methods Presentation.Download the Full Presentation >


Telling the PFAS story with pine needles

As an ever-expanding group of chemicals, per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) require novel techniques to monitor their current and historical presence in the environment. Concerns over exposure to PFAS chemicals continue to grow, with some having known toxic characteristics and the potential effects of others remaining unknown.1 In addition, while PFAS are one of the most persistent synthetic chemicals to date, most of them hardly degrade in the environment.2 So, how long do traces of PFAS last in our environment? Two tools used to help answer this question are active samplers and passive samplers.

Back to the new basics: Part 3 | LC vs. LC-MS and what it means for your lab

In this final installment of our “Back to the new basics” series, we take one more look at analytical techniques and best practices in the lab, and opportunities to improve efficiency. Here, we explore the basic principles of high-performance liquid chromatography (LC) and liquid chromatography mass spectrometry (LC-MS), and how these techniques can affect a lab’s efficiency and productivity.

Meat vs plant based. What is the best option?

As we become more conscious about the planet, healthier lifestyles and our duty to protect the environment, attitudes and behaviours are shifting when it comes to food consumption.
