Lab success in melamine detection

Most laboratories worldwide are capable of detecting melamine in food, according to a new study by the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC).

Levels of the harmful substance in food samples were measured accurately by more than 70 per cent of the laboratories taking part in the study. The results suggest that the global response to last year’s contaminated milk scandal in China has been effective, according to JRC.
