Trailblazers: Oscar Cabrices on Food Testing Trends to Watch for in the Americas

Apr 17, 2019 | Blogs, Food / Beverage | 0 comments

With the rapid shift in diet consciousness and environmental concerns, and the emergence of new technology, it’s a new food world.  As a result, food testers are beginning to have a greater need for rigorous food testing techniques to ensure food safety and quality.

In this video, we have a chat with our Americas Market Development Manager, Oscar Cabrices, to hear his outlook on the food testing landscape in the region, along with some recommendations for his food testing laboratory customers.


Discover high-throughput LNP-mRNA integrity profiling

Lipid-based nanoparticles (LNPs) are effective non-viral vectors for delivering messenger RNA (mRNA) products, most notably used for production of vaccines against the recent SARS-CoV-2 pandemic.

Eliminate chick culling with innovative technology

While it sometimes seems questionable whether humanity and modern technology can coexist, technological advances in science can help pave the way to more compassionate business practices.

Using wastewater monitoring to assess exposure to PFAS

Per-and polyfluorinated alkyl substances (PFAS) are known for their water- and grease-resistant properties, which make them useful in many everyday items. In fact, a study from 2020 estimated over 200 “use categories” covering more than 1,400 individual PFAS compounds in commercial products—they are truly all around us. Due to their extensive presence and potentially harmful effects (these effects are still mostly uncertain), exposure to PFAS is a growing concern. Humans and wildlife have been exposed to these chemicals through a variety of routes, including food packaging, drinking water and cleaning products.
