Workshop MOSH/MOAH

from 22 – 23 November, 2018

Dates:  November 22th – 23th, 2018

Venue:  LECO European Application and Technology Center

Research has shown that many foodstuffs and food packagings are contaminated with hydrocarbons consisting of either mineral oils (mineral oil saturated hydrocarbons, MOSH, and mineral oil aromatic hydrocarbons, MOAH) or polyolefinic products. Mineral oil contamination has been getting more and more attention from official authorities, as their accumulation in the human body has been demonstrated to be toxic. This workshop will highlight current actions and regulations being taken, and provide solutions for staying compliant.

This workshop is ideal for those involved in the production of foodstuffs and food packaging, as well as new and advanced GC-MS operators from industry, research centres, and contract laboratories working in the field of MOSH/MOAH. This workshop is also an ideal opportunity for networking between analytical chemists, industry experts, and LECO product specialists.
