img01The MYCOSPEC project aims to develop an innovative tool for on-site mycotoxin diagnosis of fungal diseases at the surface of foods and in liquid foodstuffs using infrared spectroscopic fingerprinting techniques. The envisaged approach will enable the development of a compact yet highly sensitive tool, which will ensure that larger volumes of the foodstuffs can be probed, sensitively detected, and quantified.

The MYCOSPEC project was  officially launched in Castelldefels, Spain, on November 19-20 2013. Project partners from across Europe came together for the event, which was hosted by IRIS, the project coordinator.
