ISO-FOOD summer school on trace element speciation in food

25-27 September 2017

The Summer School included theory and two days of hands-on experience in the laboratory. Understanding elemental speciation requires robust analytical methods with well-established methodologies for analysing food. The course addressed this by providing participants with an in-depth knowledge of trace element speciation using examples of essential and non-essential elements including Cr, Zn, Ni, Hg and As to teach and demonstrate the state-of-the art analytical approaches to the problem of trace element speciation. The lectures also covered the topic of nanoparticle residues in food. In total forty-five participants representing academia, industry and governmental and non-governmental organizations attended this free event.
