Advances in Biodetection & Biosensors
05 Mar 2013 - 06 Mar 2013 - Barcelona, Spain
Advances in Biodetection and Biosensors is now in its 6th year, and is going from strength to strength.
This year, we are expanding the meeting to incorporate more focus on Biosensors. Biosensors are small analytical devices that can convert a biological stimulus into an electrical signal. These can be for things such as measuring concentrations of substances within the body and are extremely valuable in rapidly detecting when these levels change. For example, biosensors could be extremely valuable to diabetics in rapidly informing the individual when blood glucose levels fluctuate out of normal parameters.
The conference will also cover other areas of biodetection, such as field ready pathogen detection devices, which could be very useful in LEDC’s where there is a need for rapid diagnosis of diseases, when no hospitals are available.

Using X-rays to Figure Out Fats
Scientists trying to replace food fats with non-saturated versions are looking to x-rays to aid them.
Feeding Babies Egg and Peanut May Prevent Food Allergy
The new analysis pools all existing data, and suggests introducing egg and peanut at an early age may prevent the development of allergy.
Food Colour Re-Evaluation Milestone
The re-evaluation of titanium dioxide marks the completion of the EFSA's re-evaluation of all food colours permitted for use in the EU before 2009.
Risks in Your Food
Researchers have developed a method to reliably detect allergenic substances in foods.
Dietary Selenium Content Linked to Cancer
Researchers have shown higher blood selenium levels are associated with reduced liver cancer risk.
Sensor Could Help Fight Bacterial Infections
The sensor can detect E.coli bacteria in 15-20 minutes over a wide temperature range, offering a fast and cost effective tests.
Chemical in Plastics Linked to Genital Abnormalities
Researchers have linked an endocrine-disrupting chemical to reproductive organ abnormalities in children.
