GIDRM Day: Quantitative and non-targeted NMR for the protection of Health and Food

June 16, 2023

Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) is a powerful tool for the analysis of food and biological samples. Quantitative and non-targeted NMR methods allow for the determination of multiple parameters in a single analysis, providing a comprehensive picture of the sample composition. This is particularly relevant in the context of food safety and health protection, where the identification and quantification of specific compounds is essential to ensure compliance with regulations and to prevent potential health hazards.

In this NMR Day, we will discuss the latest advances in quantitative and non-targeted NMR methods for the analysis of food and biological samples. We will focus on the use of these techniques for the characterization of food quality parameters, such as composition, authenticity, and freshness. We will also highlight the potential of NMR for the analysis of biological fluids for the diagnosis and monitoring of diseases.

It will be emphasized the importance of method validation, interlaboratory comparisons, and international standardization in NMR analysis for the protection of health and food. These practices ensure the accuracy and reliability of NMR results and enable the comparison of data obtained from different laboratories.

Overall, this NMR Day will show the versatility and potential of quantitative and non-targeted NMR for the protection of health and food, providing insights into the latest developments and applications of this powerful analytical technique.

    Round table – Next Actions in collaborative NMR analysis

    Collaborative analysis represents an important aspect of the scientific community, enabling researchers to share data, expertise, and resources. This has led to new discoveries, better understanding of complex systems, and improved reproducibility of results. However, challenges exist in collaborative NMR analysis, such as standardization of data acquisition and processing, data sharing and archiving, and communication among collaborators.

    This round table will feature speakers discussing possible actions to achieve collaborative NMR analysis, emphasizing the importance of standards and best practices.
