2014-08-11 86

Global food adulterations were exposed constantly these days.In fact,for the pursuit of profit,disguising origin and adulterating is not unusual in food chain.CTI and Food Forensics lauched the cooperation of tesing in food and beverage,using the stable isotope analyzing results to identify the food origin and adulterations.Both sides will establish and share the food isotope mapping database to provide the most reliable and convenient authenticity and adulteration identification services globally.

 

Isotope refers to the atomic with same numbers of protons and different numbers of neutrons.Stable isotope refers to the same element isotope atomic without radioactive effects.Each compound's stable isotope ratio is related to the genetic and physiological characteristics,growth environment and deriving nutrients.Substances of different types,places and growth environments have their own isotope ratios,known as isotope signal or fingerprint of nature.In the testing of stable isotope,comparing the testing sample to the approved standard sample's stable isotope ratio,we can detect the authenticity.Thus,how to build and apply the standard samples'big database is the key problem of supplying stable isotope testing services.And that's why CTI focuses on establishing global cooperation alliance.

 

CTI is listed on Shenzhen Stock Exchange.As the forerunner of Chinese testing and verification agencies,CTI provides one-stop services,issuing passports for products to global markets.

According to the agreement,Food Forensics will help CTI set up food isotope testing lab.Both sides will use the same testing method,standard and equipment to ensure the consistency of analysis results.The sharing of method and database could help food in Europe and Asia receive the precise testing,and promote the development of China's standards.
