Asia Pacific Optical Sensors Conference

Frederique, Cushla and Fang recently attended the Asia Pacific Optical Sensors Conference (APOS) in Shanghai, China.


APOS is a central forum for an update and review of technical information covering a wide range of optical sensing fields from fundamental research to systems and applications. The conference is open to researchers and professionals from not only Asia-Pacific Rim area but also all regions of the world.


Cushla presented a talk about using acridine orange for rapid estimation of bacteria counts and Fang presented a poster about her flow cytometry work. The FoodSafe team found the research using optical sensors for industrial structure monitoring and glucose detection particularly inspiring.


The conference dinner was also entertaining with a display of Chinese acrobatics.
