We have added aerobic plate count to this test material to create a more realistic sample for laboratories to analyse. Laboratories are accustomed to carrying out multiple tests on a single sample, and this provides not only a realistic material, but helps to reduce costs for laboratories participating in proficiency testing. Unlike some providers, this material will also contain background flora as well as the target organisms in order to get as close as possible to a real testing challenge.
