Food and water microbiology: rapid confirmation using MALDI-TOF, event preview

Food, water and pharma microbiology: - Rapid confirmation using MALDI-TOF II Tuesday 28 November 2017

20 Sep 2017

Venue: SCI, London, UK
Date: Tuesday 28 November 2017

The use of MALDI-TOF systems has completely revolutionized the way microbial identification/confirmation is performed. The speed, accuracy, ease of use and cost efficiency are so impressive that significant numbers of clinical laboratories all over the world, have now successfully implemented this rapid technique, on a routine basis, for rapid microbial identification/confirmation of clinically relevant microorganisms. However, this simple approach is now rapidly expanding and being further applied in many routine food, water and pharma laboratories. The relevant commercial clinical databases have been found to be fit for purpose and are continually incorporating new species including food and water-related species. The user can also set up a supplementary own personal database to be used in conjunction with the instrument manufacturer database.

On Tuesday 28 November 2017, SCI’s Environment Health and Safety Group in collaboration with Food Groups from both the RSC and SCI will present a one-day conference covering a wide range of topics in relation to food and water applications of MALDI TOF technology. This conference presents an excellent knowledge sharing and networking opportunity for food and water microbiological technical staff, public health professionals, lab managers, food and water quality industry personnel and regulators. The meeting also offers CPD points to SCI Members. Book now to receive early bird fees before Friday 20 October 2017.

An exhibition will run alongside the conference during refreshment breaks, for companies and related organisations who may wish to exhibit. For further information and prices please email conferences@soci.org. Spaces are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
