Upcoming Workshop

Screening and Confirmatory Methods for the Detection of Heavy Metals in Food

BioCop are pleased to announce that a workshop to demonstrate BioCop methods to the network of European heavy metal testing laboratories on ''Screening and confirmatory methods for the detection of heavy metals in food'' will take place at the Universita Degli Studi di Roma Tor Vergata (URTV) on the 2nd - 3rd July 2009. It is our pleasure to invite all interested stakeholders to attend this event.

The workshop will include a demonstration and training activity on the detection of lead in food (milk) using SPE and the Palmsens instrument. Speakers from the Italian National Agency for New Technologies, Energy and the Environment (ENEA) and the Institute of Food Nutrition (INRAN) will also be present discussing the environmental and nutritional aspects of heavy metals.

Oral presentations are welcome on the screening procedures and/or confirmatory methods for the detection of heavy metals. For info about abstract submission for poster or oral presentation please go to the info page.

URTV will work in collaboration with EU Community Reference Laboratory for Heavy Metals (ISS, Rome)
