Test Description

E. coli is a well-known pathogen from which food poisoning symptoms result. Enjoying a large amount of consumer interest, effective testing is required to highlight areas of potentially unsafe levels of E. coli contamination across a range of foodstuffs. This is a detection (presence / absence) proficiency test on swabs which would be used for hygiene control in food production.

Fapas proficiency tests can challenge your testing laboratories to ensure only high-quality testing standards are achieved. This can therefore ensure your customers, and regulators, receive highly accurate test results without significant bias.
