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.
