New VAM Bulletin puts food at the top of the menu

LGC : 24 May, 2006  (Company News)
LGC, Europe's leading independent analytical laboratory and the UK's National Measurement Institute for chemical, biochemical and nucleic acid analysis, has published the Spring 2005 issue of the VAM Bulletin. This twice-yearly journal looks at the activities and projects currently underway as part of the National Measurement System Valid Analytical Measurement Programme, as well as the issues surrounding the quality and reliability of analytical measurements.
LGC, Europe's leading independent analytical laboratory and the UK's National Measurement Institute for chemical, biochemical and nucleic acid analysis, has published the Spring 2005 issue of the VAM Bulletin. This twice-yearly journal looks at the activities and projects currently underway as part of the National Measurement System Valid Analytical Measurement Programme, as well as the issues surrounding the quality and reliability of analytical measurements.

This issue (number 32) focuses mainly on food analysis. Chemical analysis is vital in ensuring that the food consumed in the UK is of desired quality and is safe to eat. For these reasons, the VAM programme plays an important role in this sector. In this section of the Bulletin:

Dr Roger Wood (Food Standards Agency) looks at how food analysis has advanced in the past 25 years, how food analytical methods have changed and how recent developments may influence food analysis in the future.
Heidi Goenaga-Infante and Dr Mike Sargent report on a current VAM project, which is developing high-accuracy methods for determining the various selenium species present in selected foods and supplements.
Dr Leighton Jones (Campden and Chorleywood Food Research Association) demonstrates how VAM principles were employed in the development of a new analytical method for detecting Sudan I in food products.
Topics covered in other articles include:

The role of analytical measurement in the implementation of 'Good Manufacturing Practice' in the pharmaceutical industry.
Experimental design in life science measurements.
Accreditation of reference material producers.
