Thermo Fisher Scientific has announced a series of free seminars in food safety that will take place across the US, Canada, Europe, Southeast Asia and Japan between September and December 2009. According to the company, the seminars will offer participants the opportunity to enhance their understanding of food safety and learn about the latest advances from leaders in the field, as well as the company’s food safety scientists.

"Widely publicized food safety threats highlight the challenges food safety professionals face on a daily basis. Thermo Fisher’s food safety programme addresses the business realities of improving food safety, using new methods and technologies to mitigate the unique demands of high-throughput testing and the perishable nature of many products," said Gerry Broski, marketing director for food safety in a statement.

The company reports that presenters will discuss new technologies to improve laboratory productivity, including high-resolution mass spectrometry for non-targeted screening in food safety and how these techniques can overcome emerging risks and new threats to our food supply. In addition the seminars will explore topics including global perspectives on food safety, improving method performance to comply with new methods and regulatory requirements and the simplification of multiresidue methods for pesticides and veterinary drug residues.
