Total Volatile Basic Nitrogen in foodstuffs can be a strong indicator of the foodstuffs' freshness, and therefore gives an idea of whether this foodstuff is safe for consumption or of low quality.
Effective testing techniques must be utilised to accurately detect low quality or old foodstuffs which may be unfit for consumption. By maintaining effective testing abilities, achieved through utilising quality control materials, these risks can be mitigated or avoided.
Fapas quality control materials can be used in conjunction with proficiency tests, to provide standardised training for staff, to track your progress on going against a control, or validate testing instruments under varying conditions. Fapas quality control materials are made up of directly comparable proficiency test material, and as such can be composed of one of more analytes of known concentration, from which to provide an ongoing challenge for your laboratory testing arrangement to show consistent testing results under a range of differing conditions.
