Ometric founder speaks at pet food event

Dr. Michael L. Myrick, chief scientist of spectroscopy innovator Ometric Corporation, will be present at the 2008 Pet Food Forum, a premier event for the pet food industry that takes place April 14-16, 2008 in Chicago.

The presentation will cover the topic of "In-Line Analysis of Moisture, Water Activity and Nutrients Using Multivariate Optical Computing(TM)," a process developed by Myrick and his research team at the Columbia, S.C.-based Ometric Corporation.

"From a safety and quality control standpoint, it's vital for pet food industry manufacturers to have the ability to accurately measure the types of ingredients and the level of moisture for all products prior to distribution in the marketplace," said Dr. Myrick.

Myrick continued, "I'm honored to have the opportunity to discuss this important topic with pet food industry leaders and share information about Multivariate Optical Computing(TM) -- innovative technology that is applicable to any food and beverage manufacturer where ingredient control is important. By providing real-time, in-line data of the industrial process, manufacturers are able to reduce waste, maximize ingredient compounding and better manage the overall quality control while ensuring a greater return on investment."

Hosted by Pet Food Industry magazine, Pet Food Forum is an annual event that features industry educational exhibits and presentations for more than 1,000 pet food industry leaders.
