Agroindustry: ENEA developed the first photoacoustic laser for food fraud detection

"SafeFood", the first photoacoustic laser system for detecting adulterated foods, developed by ENEA, is available to food industries and large distribution chains. The prototype can detect in real time contaminants on untreated samples of small amounts of product. "This laser system, designed to be installed in production lines, can be easily carried and the measurement conducted in just a few minutes", Luca Fiorani, researcher at the ENEA Diagnostics and Metrology Laboratory of the Frascati Research Center.
