ANSES at the Paris International Agricultural Show

The Paris International Agricultural Show (SIA) is an important showcase for ANSES, a key player in the area of health and safety. This year, the Agency opens the doors of its laboratories to you! Its eleven reference laboratories, located throughout France, conduct their work in three major areas: animal health and well-being, food safety and plant safety.  Our scientists will invite young and old alike to take part in a number of experiments (DNA extraction, observation of minute organisms through a microscope, etc.), so you too can become "scientists for a day".  Slip into your lab coats and gloves, there's something here for everyone! 
The Agency also invites you into its family kitchen to discover the basics of good food hygiene in a fun and educational way.  What's the best way to organise food in your refrigerator? How to read and understand food packaging information? Why should you comply with the "use-by date"? Can eating raw fish be dangerous? Does a red bell pepper provide more vitamin C than an orange?  When is it important to wash your hands? These are just some of the questions you will find answers to in the jumbo quiz designed by our scientists.  
And to conclude, new technology buffs will have access to tablet computers on which they can discover our new digital library and view all of our scientific publications. 

Come test your knowledge at the ANSES stand: Hall 4 / Aisle C / No. 119 /
