Training in the detection and quantitation of veterinary drug residues just end last week! A great team of participants from Egypt, Iraq, Indonesia, Chile and Kenya worked side by side to conquer some of the most challenging analyses we have taught so far. Not only is extraction complicated by the fact that different groups need different procedures, some of these small molecules are also electrostatic and cross-contaminate very easily. But these challenges were no match for our terrific group who succeeded in their analysis with guidance from our wonderful FDA and USDA instructors and our very own Romina!
Congratulations IFSTL Vet Drugs Class of 2013!

False negative results in microbiology
A presentation at this week's American Society for Microbiology (ASM), where our very own Dr. Angela Winslow is, discussed some interesting results from a review of proficiency testing in food micro labs. Reported by HACCPEuropa at http://www.haccpeuropa.com/2013/05/21/are-food-laboratory-results-accurate/

Food microbiology laboratories continue to submit false negative results and false positive results on a routine basis.
