For years, traders have been passing off a lesser quality rice as the world's finest long-grained, aromatic rice, basmati, in key markets like the US, Canada and the EU. Increased concern regarding the authenticity of basmati rice throughout the world have lead to new developments in Food Authenticity Testing.Read More
Serendipity or ‘accidental discovery’ is the absolute epitome of innovation. Vaccination, penicillin and Viagra are some famous examples of serendipitous discoveries, but did you know that the splitless injection technique, stir bar sorptive extraction (SBSE) and selected ion flow tube MS (SIFT-MS) were also discovered by clever accident? The webinar will provide basic insights into the process of innovation and how to implement it successfully using principles and tools from Lean thinking.Read More
