Test Description

This quality control material can help you track your testing ability for the correct identification of fish species from a target list of possible species.

Deliberate food adulteration for economic gain is increasing, with high profile issues making national or international news. There is now a greater emphasis on authenticity testing with a number of international projects addressing the analytical problems. The Fapas authenticity and adulteration quality control materials allow laboratories to assess and track their detection capability for undeclared high level substitutions. And provide feedback from which to improve your testing ability if needed, or maintain high quality testing across a range of testing environments.

Fish speciation offers key challenges to testing laboratories. As global fish consumption continues to remain high across a large portion of the globe, the challenge for labs to maintain high quality testing across a range of testing conditions will continue to remain key to both manufacturer and lab business success.

To mitigate the risk of poor quality testing standards Fapas quality control materials should be employed to track your testing ability and highlight any areas of improvement between proficiency testing activities, be this unintentional bias or generally poor laboratory practise. These issues can be highlighted quickly and effectively from which to mitigate any risk of low quality testing standards being passed to your customers.
