Why This Event?
Over the past few years, China has been constantly experiencing the food safety and environmental pollution issues along with its humongous expansion of economic scale and GDP. It has been frequently reported that the recent crisis including excessive exposure levels of heavy metal in rice, abundant presence of plasticizer in liquor, adulteration of melamine and DCD, excessive presence of veterinary drugs and pesticides residue, and so on, have been severely challenging people’s nerve on their health, safety, and the standard of living in China, as well as China government’s decisions in maintaining a balanced economic growth rate and a greener and safer nation with high quality of international standards. Therefore the analytical monitoring industry is being under the unprecedented pressure. It also imposes huge challenges to scientists in searching for fast, effective, specific and sensitive approaches of detection and control of toxic and harmful substances from various and complex biological matrices. The multifarious and complicated nature of sample cardinality, tedious sample pretreatment, varied data analysis and many uncertain human factors make the traditional detection technology limited by the bottlenecks of efficiency, sensitivity and speed. How to find the "green" "rapid" "non-destructive" and " In-situ" detecting method besets the analytical industry and regulatory agencies much. What will be the next generation predominant technology in the analytical world?
