The AOAC INTERNATIONAL Midyear Meeting and Analytical Solutions Forum has evolved to empower the scientific community to take the lead on addressing global issues.

The Analytical Solutions Forum (ASF) is a mechanism for global stakeholders to identify new technologies and emerging analytical needs and to propose actions to address them.
