Groundbreaking International Training Lab to Strengthen Food Safety in U.S. and Globally
Date:5/21/2010

MILFORD, Mass., May 21 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Waters® Corporation (NYSE: WAT) and the University of Maryland announced today they have formed a groundbreaking partnership to establish the first facility in the world to train scientists from foreign governments and manufacturers on the state-of-the-art methods of analysis that will help them meet U.S. food safety standards. Set to open next year, the International Food Safety Training Laboratory (IFSTL) will be operated by the Joint Institute for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (JIFSAN), a collaboration between the University of Maryland and U.S. Food and Drug Administration.  

The United States imports more than $80 billion worth of food from 150 countries, resulting in about 15 percent of the total U.S. food supply. The IFSTL, located at the University of Maryland, College Park, will provide year-round science-based, hands-on training that supports the FDA's food safety goals.  The IFSTL will be uniquely prepared to train scientists to detect both chemical and microbiological contaminants. Scientists have been seeking this kind of multifaceted training for years, and the IFSTL will fulfill this critical need.

Members of Congress applaud Waters efforts and leadership in the creation of the IFSTL, noting the importance of food safety issues.

"Food safety issues are vital in today's growing global marketplace. The creation of the International Food Safety Training Laboratory will help protect consumers. By training scientists here at home and abroad, we can work together t
