  • The application of real-time PCR for food authenticity testing inclusive of the quantitation of Equine DNA

    12/06/2015 - LGC (Teddington)

    LGC will be running a further Knowledge Transfer event on the application of real-time PCR for food authenticity testing inclusive of the quantitation of Equine DNA. This is scheduled to take place on Thursday 17th September at LGC (Teddington), and represents a joint event held by Defra and the Government Chemist.

    This joint Knowledge Transfer event will address the two separate topics of i) a real-time PCR method for quantitation of horse DNA; ii) best measurement practice guidance for the application of real-time PCR for food authenticity testing in general. The morning session will be focused primarily on the quantitation of horse DNA using the method supported by Defra Project FA0135 and developed at LGC, and the afternoon session will be focused on identifying issues associated with food authenticity testing using real-time PCR, inclusive of interactive discussions (please see attached) The Knowledge Transfer event will be held on Thursday 17th September. Participation is free for Public Analyst laboratories and associated staff, and refreshments and lunch will be provided. We would very much welcome your participation in this course, the registration for which is now open and on-line at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/HDY2SZB
