  • Validation of Innovative Tools to Assess and to Improve Microbiological Safety in the Food Chain

    This webinar we will focus on the acceleration of method validation. More specifically with the use of artificial intelligence (AI) it is possible to analyze data from existing official validation of alternative methods to generate tools which can use past evidence to revise and refine the validation criteria so that alternative methods can benefit from a more efficient validation. In this webinar, we will first present the potential of AI in the data analysis to produce models able to predict behaviors and outcomes, with a specific focus on microbiological systems. A critical review will then be presented on the rapid methods available in the market for the detection of foodborne pathogens, which will also underline pros and cons of these approaches. Lastly, a food producing company will report the potential benefits of such an approach, specifically regarding the faster validation of new rapid methods, such as “a lab-on-chip” device for the detection of foodborne pathogens.
