Food Analysis Applications Seminar



Food Analysis Applications Seminar

Foodstuffs provide nutrition for people and animals. They contain nutrients that supply the necessary energy and enable functions essential to life.

Numerous laws and regulations exist to guarantee the safety and quality of foodstuffs. Analytics has become an indispensable tool for monitoring food, commodities and stimulants. And the demands on analytics and analysts are constantly increasing.

Shimadzu and Merck would like to invite you to a one-day user seminar that will introduce a wide range of new applications, as well as tips and tricks for implementing them in food laboratories.

The training seminar is aimed at all analysts involved in the monitoring and analysis of foodstuffs – from contract laboratories to food producers’ on-site laboratories.

In addition to a comprehensive lecture programme, there will be plenty of time for analysts to converse and network. The precise dates, locations and details of the programme, as well as a link to the registration process, will be released shortly (can be found below).

We would be delighted to see you in Basel.
