Test Description

Milk Powder forms a large part of the nutritional intake of an infant's diet as well as being a key ingredient of many processed foodstuffs.

Sulfonamides make up a significant proportion of veterinary medicines, and as such effectiveness of detection and quantification is key to promote safe foodstuffs for consumption. With a non-targeted detection method needed, key challenges of laboratory testing abilities can be made using proficiency testing to effectively evaluate your capabilities in a simulated environment.

Veterinary medicines used in animals have a wide range of effects in humans. Hence, many veterinary medicines have extremely low maximum residue limits (MRLs) or even no limit, where any detection is classed as non-compliant. The Fapas proficiency testing (PT) materials are produced in keeping with EU MRLs or minimum required performance limit (MRPL) where MRLs are not set.
