As world markets become more interdependent and populations grow, more and more food is being exported from countries that struggle to comply with food safety regulations and controls. At the same time people living in importing countries rely on government safeguards to protect them from impurities in produce and livestock. Any tip in the scales can cause alarming consequences so both parties have a common interest in clean, safe food.

Government agencies charted with protecting the food supply are turning to the latest in analytical technology to test crops, seafood and farm animals. One of the most common contaminants on the watch list is residues from pesticides and veterinary drugs in animals, shellfish and produce. Solutions are called for that set new standards in the detection of these contaminants.

In its standing as a leader in food safety analysis, Waters Corporation will hold a Food Safety Summit from April 18-21 in Manchester, United Kingdom. An invitation-only audience of industry leaders will learn more about Waters' food safety solutions that are used to detect pesticides, veterinary drugs and even pollutants at lower levels than ever before. Waters executives and senior staff will present on the following topics:

– Practical Considerations for Food Safety Analysis

– Multi-residue pesticide analysis by LC/MS/MS and GC/MS/MS

– Analysis of Veterinary Drug Residues by LC/MS/MS and LC/MS/MS

– Analysis of Dioxins and related POPs using GC/MS and GC/MS/MS

– Waters® Chemistry Solutions for Food Safety

In addition, two outside experts from Europe will also speak.

They are:

– Paul Young from the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development Northern Ireland, Belfast, UK who will discuss

– Veterinary Drug Residues and EU Legislation." Dr. Young travels extensively to Asia and Latin American and regularly advises laboratories on food testing and EU regulations
