Rapid Detection for Food Safety
Date/Time: June 27, 2016 - June 28, 2016,
This conference will feature presentations on emerging optical, nanotechnological, spectroscopic and genomic technologies for pathogen detection and characterization, including label-free and high-throughput methods. Benefits and challenges of these new methods and their comparison with existing techniques will be discussed. The fundamental importance of pre-analytical sample preparation to detection outcomes and the competing paradigms of culture-based vs. culture-independent approaches will also be emphasized.
