    2008-06-22 14:50:39     CRIENGLISH.com
Beijing has unveiled a specially designed food safety mobile laboratory and a mobile command car to improve the city's ability to prevent and handle food safety problems during the Olympic Games.

The food safety mobile laboratory checks for noxious chemicals such as food additives and pesticide residue, and harmful biological substances such as microorganisms and biological toxins.

Lu Yong is director of the food safety monitoring center for the Beijing Olympics.

"This lab can be used to specifically identify the quality and quantity of harmful substances like food additives and pesticide residue. Usually, we need five days to complete a check. With this lab, however, we only need three hours to complete the preliminary examination."

The mobile commanding car, installed with a GPS satellite communication system, will mainly be used to transmit audio and video materials back to the command center.
