Certificate in Food Analytical Instrumentation

The objective of this programme is to give students a conceptual introduction to the various modern instrumental techniques in food analysis and understand the applications, strengths and limitations of different methods. 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 Certificate programme 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), Super Critical Fluid Extraction Chromatography and Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer (AAS) are some of instruments in which training will be provided. The participants will get to learn basics of instruments including Viscosity and Consistency Measurements of Food and Thermal Methods of Analysis (DTA, DSC, Thermogravimetry etc.). The programme content gives overview of instrumental analysis with respect to safety as well as regulatory perspective.

On completion of the programme the student will be able to demonstrate interaction of food by using different analytical techniques and may assess physico-chemical properties of foods.
