Training of Analytical Competencies Focused on Micronutrient Analysis in Bangladesh

November 27th - December 6th, 2017
Price: $3500
Registration Deadline: November 27th, 2017
Instructor: TBA

This training program will enable the relevant stakeholders in Bangladesh (Food Safety Authority, standard setting bodies and/or non-governmental partners) to measure micronutrients in food, especially fortified rice. It is expected that the gained competencies will allow the relevant agencies the accurate verification of fortification levels not only in fortified rice but in similar food matrices.

Methods of Determination for Drug Residues in Fish, Meat, and Poultry

January 29th - February 7th, 2018
Price: $2500
Registration Deadline: January 8th, 2018
Instructor: TBA

This course provides lectures on the regulations regarding veterinary drugs in fish, meat and poultry, as well as, theoretical and hands-on practice of fit-for-purpose laboratory methods.
