DNA Analysis – Fast and Portable Methods Online Training

November 30, 2022

Marta Prado group leader of the Food Quality and Safety Research Group at INL – International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory will host a DNA Analysis – Fast and Portable Methods Training on the 15th and 16th of December 2022 through the EIT Food platform that offers a mix of online learning and in-person courses at different locations across Europe.

This training consists of a two-day course including state-of-the-art knowledge of DNA analysis methods. The programme will include insights into food fraud and possible vulnerabilities, information regarding innovative traceability systems, regulatory requirements regarding product labelling and traceability, information regarding available DNA analysis methods, including rapid and on-site methods, practical work based on real case studies (fish, meat and dairy products, complex food matrices).

DNA Analysis – Fast and Portable Methods training will boost technology management capabilities by improving the ability to use emerging technologies related to DNA analysis, enhancing the competitiveness of your food industry and contributing to better control of traceability and authenticity in food systems.

You’ll be encouraged to implement new analytical systems and create new laboratory control lines. It will contribute to the development and implementation of new solutions, having a direct impact on the problem-solving and critical thinking capability related to food authenticity management.
