113th AOAC International Annual Meeting and Exposition

26-30 September 1999
Houston, Texas, USA

This meeting focuses on analytical methodology and laboratory management for chemists, microbiologists, and other scientists working in analysis of foods, beverages, feeds, fertilizers, pesticides, soil, water, human and animal drugs, hazardous wastes, forensics, and other related areas.

Scheduled program topics include adulteration of foods; advances in nutrient analysis; analytical chemistry of phycotoxins in seafood and drinking water; detection of genetically modified organisms (GMO); feeds, seeds, and fertilizers; food safety initiative-seafood, produce, and beef; mega reg (pathogen reduction); proficiency testing; uncertainty of results; and the Wiley Award Symposium on Immunochemical Techniques in Food Contaminant Analysis.

The meeting will also feature numerous poster sessions and Regulatory Roundtables on nutrient and dietary supplements and on Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points (HACCP) and accreditation, where representatives from regulatory agencies worldwide will talk about upcoming programs and meet in small groups to answer questions, learn about concerns, and discuss issues in depth.

A large Expo will display the latest in analytical laboratory equipment and services, and will provide the opportunity to discuss needs with vendors and learn about how to improve your laboratory.

Training courses held before and after the meeting will include sessions on implementing good laboratory practices (GLPs); intralaboratory (in-house) analytical method validation; ISO9000, ISO/IEC Guide 25, and the laboratory; practical SFE methodology for the AOAC methods program; quality assurance for analytical laboratories; quality assurance for microbiological laboratories; and statistics for method development.
