Description

The Knowledge Foundation's Fourth Annual Rapid Detection for Food Safety will be held in Alexandria, VA from June 26-27, 2017. This symposium will feature presentations on emerging optical, nanotechnological, spectroscopic and electrochemical technologies for pathogen detection, including label-free and high-throughput methods. Novel ligands for pathogen capture will also be examined. Benefits and challenges of these new methods and their comparison with existing techniques will be discussed. Label-free approaches and the advantages of novel bioaffinity ligands will be highlighted.

TOPICS WILL INCLUDE, BUT ARE NOT LIMITED TO:
* Light scattering and spectral pattern recognition for bacterial detection
* Raman and FTIR spectroscopy for high-throughput detection of pathogens and toxins
* Flow cytometry for rapid detection of pathogens in complex matrices
* Antimicrobial peptides as bioaffinity ligands for pathogen detection
* High affinity capture and detection of foodborne pathogens using phage tail proteins arrayed onto solid phase supports
* Electrochemical nano-biosensors for food safety
* Parallel capillary electrophoresis for high-throughput detection and characterization of pathogens

We are currently recruiting speakers for this event, and welcome those who wish to present their knowledge and expertise to submit a proposal by DECEMBER 20 for priority consideration.
