Certificate in Analytical Instrumentation for Food Analysis


Analysis of foods is incessantly demanding the development of more robust, efficient, sensitive, and cost-effective analytical methodologies to guarantee the safety, quality, and traceability of foods in compliance with legislation and consumer demands. The traditional methods used at the beginning of 20th century based on wet chemistry have evolved into modern powerful instrumental techniques used in food laboratories. This improvement in technology has led to significant enhancements in analytical accuracy, precision, detection limits, and sample throughput, thereby expanding the practical range of food applications.

At IGMPI, the FFSQ team has come up with this short-term training program to cater individuals who want to acquire knowledge and skill in the field of instrumentation analysis of food. Modern analytical equipments including Gas Chromatography, High Performance Liquid chromatography (HPLC) and Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer (AAS) are some of instruments in which training will be provided. The participants will get to learn basics of instruments and how to operate/calibrate the equipment for routine and special analysis. An introduction to basic troubleshooting will also be offered. The programme content gives overview of instrumental analysis with respect to safety as well as regulatory perspective.

Once completed with the programme, the students will be equipped with the proficiency in instrumental analysis of food and food products. It will enhance their knowledge and skills in operating, maintaining, handling, troubleshooting, interpretation and application of instrumental analysis. The food processing sector is growing at a much faster pace than any other industry in the country. Numerous government funded/ private food quality testing laboratories have developed in recent time. The newly established industries and food testing laboratories along with the existing ones require technically trained manpower to handle analytical equipments.
