AMSA Announces Symposium Speakers on “New Technologies in Meat Quality Assessment”

Jul 06, 2020

Cargill120The American Meat Science Association (AMSA) is pleased to announce, Dr. Jens Petter Wold and Dr. Dale Woerner will be the featured speakers in the concurrent symposium entitled “New Technologies in Meat Quality Assessment” on Tuesday, August 4, 2020 during the 66th International Congress of Meat Science and Technology (ICoMST) and the AMSA 73rd Reciprocal Meat Conference (RMC) exclusively virtual meeting. This session will be sponsored by Cargill.

The featured presentations include:

JensPetterWoldNIR spectroscopic techniques for quality and process control in the meat industry: In this presentation Dr. Jens Petter Wold, Senior Research Scientist at Nofima, will give a brief overview of how in-line NIR spectroscopy is used for quality and process control in the meat industry today, including opportunities, challenges and limitations. Fundamental aspects and performance of novel NIR methods for in-line monitoring of e.g. core temperature in sausages during heat treatment, detection of Woody Breast myopathy in chicken fillets, and fat marbling in steaks will be presented and discussed.

Dale Professional HeadshotRapid evaporative ionization mass spectrometry (REIMS) as a novel technology for accessing meat characteristics: A novel technology, Rapid Evaporative Ionization Mass Spectrometry (REIMS), utilizes metabolomics to identify compositional differences in meat. REIMS is a relatively new technology that is emerging in many areas of science, including in human medicine and biological sciences.  REIMS-based tissue analysis generally takes only a few seconds and can provide histological tissue identification with 90−98% correct classification performance. With REIMS, the operator is provided with a highly accurate mass spectrum in a matter of seconds. In this session Dr. Dale Woerner, Associate Professor and Cargill Endowed Professor at Texas Tech University, will provide applications and result for beef, lamb, and pork.

The 66th ICoMST and AMSA 73rd RMC will be held August 3-6, 2020 online in the virtual format. For more information please visit: www.icomst2020.com or contact Deidrea Mabry 1-800-517-AMSA ext. 12.
