Food Authenticity and Spectroscopy

List

You may have certainly enjoyed an authentic honey, wine, or olive oil. Yet, each of these foods are at risk for fraud. To mitigate and investigate food fraud, researchers use analytical methods, such as spectroscopy, to analyze the constituents of food.

Bacterial Culture

Infographic

There are lots of reasons to culture bacteria, many sources from which to culture them and diverse species with equally diverse growth requirements – some pickier than others. To give yourself a fighting chance at successful bacterial culture it is therefore vital to pick the correct culture conditions for your purpose and avoid contamination by using good aseptic technique.
