[Webinar] Environmental Monitoring: Advanced EMPs
Work smarter to extract additional value from EMP data.

Our Instructors will utilize examples and case studies to show you how EMP data can provide information beyond simple verification that sanitation efforts were successful. Specifically, when data is viewed with time, space, and workflow in mind, it can give valuable information on where and what corrections are needed in a process.

During this Advanced EMP Webinar, Dr. Florence Wu will utilize various case studies to:

✓ Highlight various data analysis strategies. This includes the utilization of historic data for comparison to provide additional insights.
✓ Highlight the unique challenges presented by each case study and why a “one size fits all" mentality should be avoided for your EMP.
✓ Identify when special tools, such as whole-genome sequencing and zone 1 testing, are applicable to your EMP.
✓ Illustrate how to respond to organism recurrence, as opposed to transient strains of pathogens. Special emphasis will address the needs of raw, ready-to-eat manufacturers who have characteristic environmental risks due to the absence of a kill step.
✓ Generate trial metrics to assess as models for continuous improvement.
