NORWOOD, MASSACHUSETTS, U.S.A. – Advanced Instruments will make three scientific presentations at the AOAC Annual Meeting in Orlando, Florida, September 26-29, 2010, including one at the prestigious Wiley Award Symposium.
“We are honored to be selected as a panelist for this year’s symposium. We congratulate this year’s Harvey W. Wiley Award winner, Dr. David Barbano of Cornell University, for his many outstanding contributions to the analytical sciences field,” said Peter Costas, vice president of sales and marketing at Advanced Instruments.
Evert de Jong of Advanced Instruments’ Delta Instruments subsidiary will join the Wiley Award Symposium’s distinguished panel, which will discuss “Testing for Payment, Quality, and Adulteration: Is It All Hidden in the Mid-IR Spectra?” In his presentation, Mr. de Jong will address cutting-edge applications of mid-infrared milk analysis to predict fatty acid composition and to rapidly screen milk for adulterants using chemometric analysis of mid-infrared spectra. The Wiley Award Symposium will be held on September 27 at 1:30 p.m.
Also on the AOAC Annual Meeting program, Eileen Garry of Advanced Instruments will present a scientific poster in the General Methods session entitled, “Base Freezing Point Values of Untainted Goat, Sheep, and Water Buffalo Milk.” Base freezing point values were used to generate tables for estimating extraneous water in goat, sheep, and water buffalo milk. The presentation will be held on September 28 at 11:30 a.m.
Anthony Pappas will conduct an exhibitor presentation on “AOAC Level Quality Control with Advanced Instruments Products.” The presentation will discuss how Advanced Instruments products support the AOAC’s mission of “worldwide confidence in analytical results.” It will review how Advanced provides a wide-ranging product portfolio allowing users the ability to ensure confident, quality decisions with a breadth of applications in food, dairy, water testing, and more. The presentation will be held on September 28 at noon.
New SomaScope Smart Debuts at AOAC
The new Delta Instruments SomaScope(TM) Smart Somatic Cell Counter will make its first AOAC appearance at the Advanced Instruments exhibit booth #107.
