XSpectra: The Most Advanced Real Time Food Contaminants Detector

Project description

X-ray detector for safe foods

Food safety inspections cannot always detect contamination in time. Detection is a process that often requires several different laboratory examinations. The EU-funded XSpectra project is developing x-ray technology that can examine in real time the physico-chemical characteristics of materials. This will allow inspectors to detect foreign bodies immediately, which are not explorable with current technology. Based on artificial intelligence, this technology improves security, reduces costs and time, and helps prevent waste in the food industry. The project will test the technology of the same name at a production line to finalise an industrial product for commercialisation.
