114th AOAC International Annual Meeting and Exposition

10-14 September 2000
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA

This meeting focuses on analytical methodology and laboratory management for chemists, microbiologists, and other scientists working in analysis of foods, beverages, feeds, fertilizers, pesticides, soil, water, human and animal drugs, hazardous wastes, forensics, and other related areas.

Scheduled program topics include advances in herbal and dietary supplement analysis, AOAC Technical Division for Laboratory Management, capillary electrophoresis, drugs [harmonization of CEN (European) and AOAC methods], European Union community recovery, genetically modified organisms (GMOs), liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry (LC/MS), Listeria methods, microbiological accreditation regulations (microbiology, food, chemistry, drugs, agriculture), PCB/natural toxin contamination (air/food/water), phasing in Good Manufacturing Practices (GLPs) to analytical testing laboratories, proficiency testing (accreditation/ quality assurance), regulatory chromatography standards and methods (advantages and disadvantages), and the Wiley Award Symposium on Authentication of Fats and Oils.

The meeting will also feature numerous poster sessions to give attendees the chance to talk with presenters one-on-one. A large Expo will display the latest in analytical laboratory equipment and services, and will provide the opportunity to discuss needs with vendors and learn how to improve your laboratory.

Training courses held before and after the meeting will include sessions on intralaboratory (in-house) analytical method validation; ISO9000, ISO/IEC Guide 25, and the laboratory; quality assurance for analytical laboratories; quality assurance for microbiological laboratories; and statistics for method development.

Holding this first AOAC International Annual Meeting of the new millennium in Philadelphia, which was the site of the very first Annual Meeting of the Association of Official Analytical Chemists back in 1886, provides an opportunity to reflect on AOAC's long history and to envision the Association's place in the future.
