Advances in analytical technology
Advances in analytical technologies have made it possible for companies to develop faster, more efficient analytical methods. These improved methods allow us either to test more rapidly, with more certainty, or to test for hazards that we previously couldn’t detect.
A new member funded research project will assess next generation technologies in microbiological and chemical analysis that could provide food companies with novel/improved tests to monitor hazards and spoilage issues. The project enables us to rapidly respond to emerging safety issues through the development of new detection methods and analytical techniques. It also provides updates on the practical aplication of new test systems available on the market.
The project builds on a previous member-funded research project of the same name that ran from 2015 to 2017, which you can read more about on page four and five.
