The benefits of taking part in international laboratory proficiency tests

This technical note describes the benefits to participant laboratories of taking part in international PTs and how to balance the cost and frequency with their national PT providers.

Laboratories carrying out analysis for export purposes can compare their performance in internationally recognised schemes and demonstrate competence in analysis if their results are challenged by analysis carried out in the receiving territory.

Halal compliance for alcohol in beverages:  a quantitative PT for low concentrations

In order to be Halal compliant, foods must contain less than 1% ethanol that has been produced by natural (aerobic) fermentation. However, the level is lower for beverages, which must contain less than 0.1% ethanol in order to be classed as Halal.

In the white paper, we describe the process of including quantitative measurement of alcohol at low concentrations in the Fapas® Halal compliance in beverages proficiency tests.
