The 49th annual Florida Pesticide Residue Workshop (FPRW) concluded on July 18th in St. Pete Beach, Florida.
It was another successful year for the meeting, which continues to see strong growth in attendance in recent years.
Some major changes are coming to the meeting. Over the last few years, the focus of the meeting as expanded to include not only pesticides but new analytes, such as Mycotoxins, veterinary drugs, and heavy metals. In keeping with this idea, beginning in 2013, the FPRW will become the North American Chemical Residue Workshop. More news about the changes at the FPRW/NACRW can be found on their website: http://www.flworkshop.com/index.php

Sample preparation was also a very hot topic this year, and we were happy to present our new Freestyle automated sample clean-up system. A new website is up and running, showing the highlights of the FREESTYLE. Be sure to check out the Configurator!
Also in keeping with the expanded topics, we presented our poster on Antioxidants in Foods and Natural Supplements. A copy of the application note can be found below. Let us know if you would like a copy, and we would be happy to email it to you.
