Join us at this insightful event to discover how modern optical and spectroscopic methods can improve your food or biosolution production.

By implementing process and production control with modern technologies, you can ensure consistent quality and safety of your products, while reducing production costs by identifying and addressing inefficiencies and bottlenecks.

The introduction of in-line quality measurement systems is often a requirement to improve productivity and efficiency, while being aligned with GMP standards.

Enable full control over your production

Photonics technologies, including spectroscopy and imaging, enable this control by providing real-time monitoring, non-destructive analysis, and the ability to detect and identify contaminants, and monitor the quality of food and bio products during production and storage.

You will learn about specific applications such as:

  • The use of NIR spectroscopy for rapid, non-invasive analysis of food composition and quality
  • The application of IR spectroscopy for the analysis of food composition, such as measuring the moisture, fat, and protein content
  • The potential of Raman spectroscopy for characterizing protein structure and interactions in biotech systems
  • The use of fluorescence spectroscopy for monitoring the stability and interactions of biomolecules in food and biotech products
  • Hyper- and multi-spectral imaging for non-invasive monitoring of food quality and identification of contaminants

Explore potential technology solutions

Photonics offers a wide range of potential solutions to meet these challenges, much of which has yet to be fully explored.

By applying these technologies in your production, you can benefit from:

  • Improving the consistency and quality of your food products and production process
  • Increasing efficiency by providing real-time feedback on critical process parameters
  • Increasing production yields and reducing waste by providing more precise control of the process
  • Enhancing safety by providing early warning of potential hazards or deviations from process specifications
  • Improving process scalability by providing a better understanding of how the process behaves at different scales
  • Facilitating regulatory compliance by providing detailed information about the process and its critical parameters

Attendees will have the opportunity to learn about the latest research and developments, and to network with other experts in the field.
