AB SCIEX, Labindia Life Sciences provide food-testing solutions in India

NEW DELHI, INDIA: AB SCIEX, a global leader in life science analytical technologies, and its distribution partner Labindia Life Sciences, are supplying a food-testing solution to the government of India. This is part of a project with the Ministry of Agriculture to help reinforce new food safety standards through better monitoring for contamination.

This project addresses pesticide contamination of fruits and vegetables. As these contaminants can be harmful to people and livestock that consume them, India has instituted more stringent laws, including an expanded list of banned pesticides that need to be accurately identified to help reduce exposure to harmful pesticides.

The Indian government implemented a mass spectrometry solution from AB SCIEX to accurately test food for a wide range of contaminants and quickly produce reliable results. “Food safety is an important issue for governments around the world. AB SCIEX is assisting the efforts in India and many other countries to protect the food supply by enabling the accurate identification of contaminants through our powerful mass spectrometry solutions,” said Laura Lauman, President, AB SCIEX.
