Bringing Science to the Kitchen: The Role of Miniaturized Spectrometers in Food Analysis

Justyna Grabska (Postdoc in the Department of Analytical Chemistry)
Food is a matter of the heart. While measures are being taken to spread knowledge about healthy nutrition, actually finding out what is inside the products we consume can be challenging. In this talk, we will explore how miniaturized spectrometers can bring the science of food analysis into the kitchen and discuss how this could potentially improve the quality of food on our table. We will also highlight the crucial role of spectroscopic sensors in modern food quality assurance, addressing the growing demand for accurate and flexible food analysis in a rapidly changing world.

Shining a Light on Natural Medicine: The Power of NIR Spectroscopy

Krzysztof Bec (Postdoc in the Department of Analytical Chemistry)
When you think about natural medicine, you might have an image of older generations passing down their knowledge about herbal treatments in your mind. Whilst that might have been true some decades ago, today we are able to single out ingredients that have healing power from our natural sources. Herbal medicine grew into a potent industry in the modern world, with cutting-edge analytical methods playing an essential role in the production process. Discover how we can shed light on the chemical composition and therapeutic properties of natural remedies, opening new doors for improved healthcare.
