University of Kentucky PI is using proprietary chemical-based methods to detect chemicals in a variety of food samples. ARS shall collaborate in a “red team – blue team” approach in which ARS will be the red team. The red team is tasked with challenging the blue team with possible scenarios that should be covered by the blue team’s monitoring system, and the blue team must address the challenge or adapt to it. After initial testing and method validation, a double-blind study will be conducted to assess the system performance and readiness for official testing.
