Cian O' Mahony, Head of Expert Modelling and Statistics, will present a poster called: “Predictive Models and Software for Listeria Monocytogenes in Ready-To-Eat Meats with varying Antimicrobial use”, which will be on display on Monday, July 27 from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM at the Exhibit Hall (Oregon Convention Center, P2-252). The work details a mathematical model and software (which we like to call an Expert Model) that can predict how listeria can growth in deli meats under different conditions and anti-microbial formulations. This demonstrates the utility of predictive microbiology specifically for antimicrobial use in foods. By housing the model in a web-based software application, a food manufacturer can quickly assess the impact of different product formulations before carrying out any experimental work, saving on time and money and increasing product safety.
Cian will also be joined at the conference by Conor McGauran, Head of Business Development. If you are interested in meeting Cian or Conor at the conference, be sure to stop by our poster or send us an email to arrange a meeting in Portland. We’re also on Twitter, where you can follow us for news and insights during this event!
We looking forward to seeing you at the IAFP Annual Meeting in Portland!
