•••9••• Messewelten analytica 2022 Analytics that benefit consumer and environmental protection Is that asparagus really local? Has the honey been diluted with cheap sugar? Does your mineral water contain nanoplastics or other pollutants? “analytica provides food inspectors with all the tools they need toanswer these questions quickly and reliably,” says ArminWittmann, analytica Exhibition director atMesseMünchen. At theworld’s leading trade fair for laboratory technology, analytics and biotechnology, whichwill be held inMunich fromJune 21 to 24, more than 50 exhibitors will showcase innovations in the field of food analytics and safety.With nearly 70 exhibitors, environmental analyticswill be another focal point. Because contaminants often enter our food from polluted waters and soils, food and environmental analytics are closely linked. Fingerprinting for food In a globalized food market, now also impacted by shortages and price increases, there is an increased risk of false claims. The systems from analytica exhibitor Elementar use isotope ratio mass spectrometry to detect food falsifications such as addedwater innatural juices and the origin of items such as olive oil and asparagus. The isotopic signature of common elements such as hydrogen, carbon and oxygen serves as a fingerprint that exposes the place of origin, additives and cultivation methods – organic or not. DNA analysis is also helpful in exposing falsifications such as the presence of horsemeat in prepared foods. With refined DNA fingerprinting from analytica exhibitor Eurofins, commodity inspectors can even distinguish basmati rice from other rice varieties. In close cooperation with researchers and users, instrument manufacturers are continuously refining their systems for food and environmental analytics. Armin Wittmann points out: “Our goal with analytica is to make it easier for all involved to exchange ideas and initiate further collaboration so that laboratories can continue to meet the increasing demands in the future.” Important news: For the first time ever, analytica 2022 will take place at the same time as automatica, the leading trade fair for intelligent automation and robotics, and ceramitec, the international meeting place for the ceramics industry. All exhibitor and visitor tickets for analytica allow entry to the two other trade fairs taking place at the same time. analytica 2022 shows the latest technologies and developments in the area of food and environmental analysis Foto: Messe München / Thomas Plettenberg Berliner Wasserbetriebe www.bwb.de Halle: B2 • Stand: 329 Brigade Elektronik GmbH www.brigade-electronics.com/de/ Halle: C6 • Stand: 251 ICS Blount Europe S.A. www.icsdiamondtools.de Halle: B3 • Stand: 405 Simon Moos Maskinfabrik a/s www.simonmoos.com Freigelände • Stand: 812/14 Snakeliner Oy www.snakeliner.com Halle: C3 • Stand: 117 Stöhr GmbH & Co.
