Any number of analytes from the list may be present for identification and quantification. Matrix will be freeze dried.
Polychlorinated dibenzodioxins, dibenzofurans and coplanar polychlorinated biphenyls are a group of polyhalogenated organic compounds that are significant environmental pollutants. They have received much worldwide concern due to their presence and toxicity. It is therefore important to highlight areas of improvement within your current testing arrangement to ensure potentially high levels of these compounds are highlighted and quantified.
These organic contaminants are ubiquitous and long-lived in the environment. They are also highly fat-soluble. Contamination of land or feed by these compounds means that residues are often detected in food matrices with a high fat content. The fat-water emulsion of milk provides the ideal matrix for transmission of these contaminants into the food chain.
Fapas proficiency testing should be used to underpin your ongoing quality assurance methods. Through the use of real food matrices, direct comparisons to your routine analysis methods can be made.
