Image June 29, 2020 Events,Featured,NEWS & UPDATES,Slider,Webinars AOAC India

  Mycotoxins are toxic secondary metabolites produced by certain filamentous fungi (molds). They can enter our food chain either directly from food components contaminated with mycotoxins or by indirect contamination from the growth of toxigenic fungi on food. Consumption of mycotoxin-contaminated food or feed can cause acute or chronic toxicity in human and animals. Thus

  Mycotoxins are metabolites of fungi having potential carcinogenic, mutagenic and other toxic effects in human and animals. Mycotoxin contamination frequently causes trade issues. Regulations have been established in many countries to protect the consumer from the harmful effects of mycotoxins. So, their detection at trace level or below regulatory limit is important. To comply

  Microbiological testing is carried out for food and feed samples, to determine the quality and safety of the product. In microbiological analysis the result is obtained by counting individual live organisms which are rarely distributed randomly in a food matrix. It is due to these reasons that, there is an uncontrollable ‘variation without a

The Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) system classifies risks to consumers into three categories—biological, chemical, and physical—and it emphasizes preventing, reducing, or eliminating high-risk biological hazards. Food safety professionals, as a result of years of education, experience, and audits to the HACCP system, often relegate physical hazards to lower risk status, primarily controlled

The ability to rapidly detect viable pathogens in food is important for public health and food safety reasons. Culture-based detection methods tend to be laborious, time consuming and slow to provide results. Several culture-independent methods to detect viable pathogens have been reported in recent years, including both ELISA and PCR. Some of these newer methods,

  The uncertainty of measurement is the key indicator of the quality of any experimental result. Proper consideration of measurement uncertainty is imperative when testing a sample against the legal/compositional limits. This task could be quite challenging when the entity measured in an investigated sample is so close to the limit, that its uncertainty, however
