Test Description

Animal products for human consumption are tightly legislated and closely monitored for compliance. Veterinary medicines used in animals are likely to have a pharmacological effect in humans. Hence, for many veterinary medicines, there are extremely low maximum residue limits or even no MRL (i.e. any detection is non-compliant). The Fapas proficiency test materials are produced in keeping with EU MRLs or minimum required performance limit (MRPL) where MRLs are not set. The result reporting requirements are also in keeping with quality control guidelines laid out in EC/657/2002. Fapas veterinary medicine proficiency test materials include incurred residues as well as fortified animal products. The proficiency tests are grouped in analytical chemical class/matrix combinations and combine identification and quantification. The proficiency tests are suitable for all methods, including screening methods (for the detection of total amount of that chemical class).

Farmed prawns are growing in number to meet large amounts of global demand and as such exceed capture from wild fisheries. As this growth in farmed prawn increases it is key to maintain a healthy and high quality stock.
