Getting the most from your PT provider
Fapas are the global leader in proficiency testing for the food and drink industry with a clear goal; to provide the highest quality PT services to our international customer base.
You may have chosen Fapas simply for the high-quality test materials or for the clear comprehensive reports, but Fapas have taken things one step further to give you the complete PT package.
Proficiency Assessment on Demand
Fapas are providing a new service for laboratories that may have missed a scheduled proficiency test and have need to demonstrate their competence in analysis for specific analytes and/or matrix, before the next available round. Proficiency Assessment on Demand (PAD) means you can order a test material, perform the analysis and receive the assigned value and z-score in around 3 weeks. We have a large range of retained materials available to use for PAD which can help show your analytical performance is reliable and robust if your laboratory routine has been disrupted or changed. Fill out our Proficiency Assessment on demand request form and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org
