Choosing your Test

Fapas offer a range of products to fulfil your quality assurance efforts. To find these our navigation menu at the top of the page splits these clearly into reference materials, quality control materials, and proficiency tests.

Our new tile structure shows all of the analyte groups within each scheme, allowing you to easily find exactly the tests you are looking for within our extensive product range.

You can filter these tiles to show only the matrices you are interested in, helping you to find the exact materials you need to maintain your testing accuracy quickly and efficiency.
