This quantitative proficiency test evaluates your testing ability for the enumeration of Clostridium perfringens in beef.

Clostridium perfringens has been found to cause a large amount of food poisoning when consumed, although they can be consumed without any harm caused. Although this is the case it important to highlight any high levels of contamination within a range of foodstuffs offered to consumers.

Microbiological contamination of food can cause a range of sickness symptoms, the most extreme of which can result in hospitalisation, contamination can also cause food spoilage. Contamination can result from raw ingredients, poor sanitation or hygiene practices, or inappropriate storage conditions.  As such extensive testing abilities are required to highlight any unsafe foodstuffs.
