The organization is committed to being a proactive, worldwide provider and facilitator in the development
Even in a post-COVID world, the food supply chains will remain spread over continents, however with renewed emphasis on traceability and safety. Focus will be on faster decision making, thus reducing spoilage in the dynamic supply-chains of perishable food commodities. Fortunately, recent developments in ambient mass spectrometry, vibrational spectroscopy and artificial intelligence promises to determine food authenticity and safety in real time. The webinar will present ambient mass spectrometry workflows for species and geographical origin authentication of seafood in real time. Also, potential of vibrational spectroscopy in rapid determination of food authenticity and microbiological safety will be discussed.
