EMSL Analytical, Inc. Hosts Students in the FIRST LEGO League (FLL) Competition

Students are researching ways to improve Salmonella detection in eggs


EMSL Analytical, Inc. shared its extensive knowledge of the food industry with elementary and middle school students who are participating in the FIRST LEGO League (FLL) Food Factor Competition. The contest’s objective is to make children think about food safety and products’ journey from farm to table. Students work together in groups to choose a food product that they wish to study and then to develop an innovative solution—either a new idea or an improvement to a current practice—for a contamination or spoiling problem affecting that item.
EMSL’s visitors, who live in the Annapolis, MD area, chose to examine Salmonella contamination in eggs. They visited EMSL’s corporate headquarters in Cinnaminson, NJ, where they were given a tour of the laboratories and a presentation on Salmonella bacteria by our microbiologists.
“We thoroughly enjoyed having the kids here, and we were amazed at how smart and inquisitive they were,” said Robert DeMalo, M.Sc., Senior Vice President of Laboratory Services. “We wish them luck in the FLL competition and were happy to assist them with their project.”
EMSL offers a wide variety of food-related testing services, including food microbiology, food chemistry analysis, food allergen testing, nutritional analysis, natural toxin testing, FDA import detention services, shelf life studies, as well as food adulteration, GMO, and quality control analysis.
