A mobile microbiology laboratory has been put to use at ADNEC: Capital Hospitality, the catering division of the Abu Dhabi National Exhibitions Company (ADNEC), has collaborated with the Abu Dhabi Quality and Conformity Council (ADQCC) alongside the Abu Dhabi Agriculture and Food Safety Authority (ADAFSA) and implemented a mobile microbiology laboratory. 312 meals were tested with the equipment during the International Defence Exhibition (IDEX) and the Naval Defence Exhibition (NAVDEX).
The laboratory comes as part of ADNEC's wider preventative and precautionary measures to ensure the safety and wellbeing of participants. As ADNEC states, this is the first time globally that the mobile Microbiology Laboratory has been used at an exhibition. It was able to provide fast and reliable food inspection services using the latest testing equipment.
