The FastPrep® System for sample preparation and the SafTest™ Platform for food quality analysis are key tools for food science researchers and their capabilities and results will be presented. “The FastPrep® System offers a unique advantage for preparing food samples for various types of downstream analysis. Most recently this system was employed to prepare various grains, nuts and seeds for the detection of mycotoxins. Additionally, the SafTest™ Platform has played a unique role for food quality and biodiesel analysis. These platforms have proven to be excellent tools for food quality analysis for many global customers”, said Milan Panic, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of MP Biomedicals.
