Sept 8, 2016 FDA Grand Rounds Now Available on Webcast

Due to system-wide technical difficulties, FDA's Sept. 8 Grand Rounds could not be viewed in its entirety. We are pleased to announce that Dr. Connie M. Ruzicka's entire presentation on Rapid Screening of Dietary Supplements for Undeclared Ingredients is now available for viewing.

Dr. Ruzicka presents on a rapid, reliable screening tool FDA's Center for Drug Evaluation and Research has developed called ion mobility spectrometry (IMS) for product quality surveillance and FDA efforts to deploy the IMS instruments in the field for on-site testing.  IMS screening can quickly identify violative products and help FDA to remove these products from the marketplace.
