RSSL launches screen service

07-Nov-2001

UK research centre Reading Scientific Services Ltd is to add irradiation testing to its portfolio of analytical services for the food industry.

 

 

 

The company announced at the Food Ingredients Europe exhibition that the new service will be able to verify whether irradiation treatment has been given to herbs and spices to detect instances where undeclared irradiation treatment may have been used on foods.

 

 

 

The test uses the Pulsed Photoluminescence (PSL) technique developed by Dr. David Sanderson at the Scottish Universities Reactor Centre and will follow the ring-tested CEN protocol.
