Portable Devices for Food Safety Advancement

Friday, January 8, 2016 at 10:00AM-11:00AM CT / 11:00AM-12:00PM ET

With an increasingly globalized market, U.S. FDA researchers have been investigating portable devices to allow for sample analysis and triage outside traditional laboratory settings in order to improve safety of consumer products. While portable devices are more established in the pharmaceutical arena, their use in evaluation of foods and dietary supplements is increasing. This presentation will focus on our work in evaluating instrumentation (Raman and near-infrared spectroscopies) and developing detection methods for skim milk powder authentication and adulteration.
