The International Association of Food Protection’s (IAPF) annual meeting is taking place this year from Saturday, July 25th — Tuesday, July 28th. The event features leaders from the food safety industry and hosts a wide variety of presentations, workshops and professional development groups.
Neogen will be in attendance at booth #544, showcasing a number of new products including Reveal 3D for Multi Treenut, innovations for ANSR—a molecular pathogen detection platform—and AccuPoint Advance, the latest innovation in hygiene monitoring, By visiting Neogen’s booth you’ll be able to see how the new design of our AccuPoint Advance sampler allows for better recovery, and more accurate results.
Also, if you haven’t picked up a copy of Neogen’s Food Allergen Validation and Verification Handbook, please stop by our booth to do so. This handbook provides guidelines, best practices and sound strategies for validation of allergen control plans, and the routine verification.
In addition, IAFP offers a wide range of educational opportunities. Some of the presentations covered in the meeting can be seen in the schedule overview and include recurring themes in genomics and process control. For example, the new Food Safety Modernization Act and the focus on preventive controls will be covered along with genomic sessions that cover identification methods, whole genome sequencing, next generation sequencing and more.
Examples of these talks include:
- Beyond the Standard Plate Count: Entering the Era of Food Microbiomics
- Poultry Slaughter Modernization and Evaluation of Process Control
- Metagenomic Analysis Pipelines: Really Learn about Your Food from Your NGS Data
- Application of Predictive Risk, Threat, and Vulnerability Tools for Food Safety and Defense
We look forward to seeing you at IAFP. If you will be at the event, please register for a time to speak with us here. See you in Portland!
