Test Description

To ensure a high quality crop, suppliers regularly use pesticides to reduce disease and pests within their crop. Through good farming practises the levels of pesticides passed to the consumer is low and manageable below safe levels. Suppliers may not always be utilising good farming practise, so it is important to ensure high quality testing to identify any high levels of various pesticides being passed to consumers.

The Fapas pesticide residues proficiency tests are based on the EU monitoring list and associated MRLs but are widely applicable to most geographic areas. We also base our statistical data analysis in keeping with quality assurance guidelines as laid out in EC SANTE/11813/2017.

Barley flour has a large range of uses within many processed foods both commercially and domestically. It is a key ingredient in many recipes and as such can have widespread effects. Within human consumption, tolerable daily intakes have been outlined for a range of mycotoxin variants. To accurately test to these legislative limits, it is important for laboratories to employ effective quality control processes, with proficiency testing playing a key role in benchmarking your testing quality across a range of analytes and matrices.

Fapas proficiency testing measures are invaluable for ensuring only high quality test results are offered to your customers and regulators alike. This can be achieved through the use of challenging test materials, which are enabled due to the real food matrices Fapas utilise. These challenging test materials can ensure effective areas of improvement are highlighted, with areas of importance available to ensure test results are detailed and accurate enough to satisfy your customers.
