Live Lab: Experience food analysis live
Experimenting against a real laboratory backdrop and experiencing experiments live has been possible at analytica for years. That is what makes the Live Lab on food analysis in Munich especially interesting. After all, safe food and healthy nutrition are important for everyone, and demand for regional products is increasingly taking center stage.
Origin and detection analyses using the latest instrumental methods and molecular biology techniques such as PCR and micro-array technologies will be demonstrated live by experts at the Live Lab. Naturally, interested audience members will also have a chance to contribute their own experiences and join the discussion. The Live Labs on various topics have a long tradition at analytica in Munich and are very popular!
Systems for food analysis are indispensible when it comes to clearing up hot topics and scandals
In the food safety and consumer protection sectors, the latest detection and origin analyses and quality-assurance systems are only possible using state-of-the-art equipment technology and the latest molecular biology methods.
When it comes to detecting insecticides, herbicides and pesticides or identifying dyes, mineral oil residues, heavy metals and other prohibited toxic substances or even allergens, genetically modified organisms or pathogens, efficient food analysis provides reliable test results. The latest developments and equipment systems of well-known manufacturers and the latest legal guidelines will be presented both in theory and practice at analytica.
New approaches call for new processes and rules, but they also provide new functionalities. In chemical food analysis, the objective is to achieve maximum separation results, conduct ultrafast analyses and get results that are as reliable and reproducible as possible. The number of samples is increasing, and in many cases multiple samples are analyzed. As capacity volumes increase, so does the need for increased automation. Especially when it comes to personal nutrition and functional foods such as prebiotics, probiotics and synbiotics or food supplements and additives intended to promote better health, besides increasingly sensitive analysis, the aspect of automation continues to increase in importance when it comes to testing for medical effectiveness.
