iCheck Sudan China launch

This article was originally published in Foodnews

DSM Nutritional Products and BioAnalyt are launching the iCheck Sudan technology in China,writes Neil Murray. The first user of this technology will be the Shanghai Food and Drug Administration (FDA), at the Shanghai Universal Expo 2010 which will be visited by approximately 70 million people. A research project started in 2007 led to iCheck Sudan. The aim was to develop a fast, portable and accurate test to detect Sudan Red dyes in eggs. This project was initiated in response to scandals in Europe and China in 2005 and 2006 where certain food products were found to be tainted with banned carcinogenic Sudan Red dyes (FOODNEWS passim) . The use of iCheck Sudan will be extended to countries where there is a demand either from food safety authorities or stakeholders of the egg value chain.
