FDA Grand Rounds: Identification of Persistent Organic Pollutants in Foods: Method Development and Automation
April 13, 2023
The FDA Grand Rounds is webcast every other month to highlight cutting-edge research underway across the agency and its impact on protecting and advancing public health. Each session features an FDA scientist presenting on a key public health challenge and how FDA is applying science to its regulatory activities.
The gold standard for the determination of legacy Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs), which include polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDDs), furans (PCDFs), biphenyls (PCBs) and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) has not significantly evolved for over 40 years. In this presentation, new instrumentation, extraction procedures, as well as novel data processing and evaluations used in an accredited laboratory will be discussed. Similar streamlined methodologies and software processes are now being evaluated for per- and polyfluorinated alkyl substances (PFAS) determinations in an accredited laboratory.

This activity is intended for physicians, pharmacists, nurses, and other scientists within the agency and external scientific communities.
Lecture 1 April 13, 2023
|12:00 - 1:00 PM EDT||Identification of Persistent Organic Pollutants in Foods: Method Development and Automation||Jeffrey Archer, MS|
Physicians, pharmacists, nurses, and those claiming non-physician CME: participants must attest to their attendance and complete the final activity evaluation via the CE Portal (ceportal.fda.gov). For multi-day activities, participants must attest to their attendance and complete the faculty evaluation each day. Final activity evaluations must be completed within two weeks after the activity - no exceptions.
Attention Pharmacists and Pharmacy Techs: Failure to provide your correct NABP AND Date of Birth information, in the required format, may result in the loss of credit for this activity. NABP profile number should be the 6-7 digit profile number assigned by the CPE Monitor and your birth date should be in the MMDD format (e.g. 0721) Do not provide your pharmacy license number. Please click the "My Account" tab and then navigate to "Edit Contact Information" to verify that your information is correct.
Attendees have 14 days from the last day of the activity to log in, complete the required evaluation(s) and attest to your attendance to claim credit.Physicians and nurses may then view/print statement of credit. Pharmacists should log into the CPE monitor 8 weeks after the last session of the activity to obtain their CE credit.
