Grand Hotel Huis te Duin - Noordwijk Aan Zee
Rapid Methods Europe is the leading conference & exhibit series dedicated to rapid methods and instrumentation of interest to the food and feed industry. There is an ever-increasing need for rapid methods and instrumentation in the field of food and feed quality. Developments in analytical techniques have led to the emergence of a wide range of rapid methods to complement the traditional methods. Faster results, higher productivity, lower costs and increased sensitivity are key words for all those professionally involved. How to keep up with the developments?
Rapid Methods Europe 2005 is aimed at the latest developments in rapid methods and instrumentation for food and feed quality determination, presenting:
- an information packed conference programme offering the very latest news.
- a marketplace/exhibit providing information on rapid methods and instrumental methods in use or becoming commercially available.
- a spotlight presentations theatre covering a wide range of topics including case studies, practical demonstrations and industry updates.
As a comprehensive overview Rapid Methods Europe 2005 offers an excellent way to network and to share ideas, providing a reference source for anyone interested in the rapid determination of food and feed quality.
Topics at Rapid Methods Europe 2005
New rapid technologies :
There is an ever-increasing need for rapid technologies in the field of food and feed quality determination. An overview of still-developing techniques and emerging technologies, which will change your world, will be presented.
Rapid testing of authenticity and adulteration:
The authenticity of foods is an important and an essential attribute. Many foods traded in Europe are classified according to their region of production, traditional method of production or the unique ingredients they contain. But how to detect rapidly and reliably authenticity and/or adulteration?
Rapid testing of quality deterioration and spoilage:
Food and feed are subject to varying degrees of (micro)-biological, chemical and physical deterioration during storage. A range of technologies with potential use to achieve rapid results for food and feed quality determination in every stage of the chain, will be presented.
Rapid testing of nutritional quality and additives:
With the increasing need to monitor processes at many stages and to show due diligence in the control of ingredients, additives and products, there is also a need to generate fast, accurate results for food and feed analysis. This session will focus on modern techniques covering their application and limitations.
Rapid testing and quality tracking & tracing:
Quality tracking & tracing does not only establish the identity and location of products, but also their quality and history in relation to parameters such as temperature, relative humidity, ingredients, production circumstances. The quality of products followed in this manner, can be predicted along in the chain at any given moment.
Rapid Methods Europe 2005 – the international conference and marketplace – is aimed at a wide range of scientist and technologists wishing to gain insight into rapid methods for food and feed quality determination. Attendance will be invaluable for analysts, technical managers, laboratory managers, food safety and quality assurance/quality control managers.
