Food testing is an emerging trend in per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) analysis. Join the discussion as SCIEX customers and industry experts explore how these “forever chemicals” have influenced our food testing and research, and how SCIEX OS software can help identify and quantify these compounds. Get insight into topics ranging from detecting PFAS in food packaging and baby food to analyzing the data with SCIEX OS software processing.

Join this event and learn:

  • All the latest PFAS testing trends and news
  • What you need to know about PFAS in food
  • How SCIEX OS software can help demystify PFAS and elevate food testing applications  
  • Where other scientists and experts are focusing their PFAS research
  • What to expect from SCIEX in the future when it comes to food testing, PFAS analysis and SCIEX OS software
