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 quality control 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 quality control materials include incurred residues as well as fortified animal products.

These quality control materials are grouped in analytical chemical class/matrix combinations and combine identification and quantification within one test, replicating the challenges your laboratories may face within your routine analysis activities. These quality control materials are suitable for all methods, including screening methods (for the detection of total amount of that chemical class).

Fish accounts for a large amount of protein consumption across the globe. As such it is imperative to ensure that the majority is of high quality and without excessive veterinary medicine contamination that could prove detrimental to consumers' health.

Veterinary medicines are used across a range of livestock groups, including fish. They can safeguard against disease which would affect both the quality and quantity offered to the consumers, resulting in less financial reward for the producers.

It is important however to ensure that excessive levels of veterinary medicines are not used across livestock, as this can have a detrimental effect on the wider environment as well as proving potentially harmful if ingested by consumers in large enough quantities.
Your effective testing ability is therefore challenged to achieve the high quality testing ability required across a range of testing environments and external factors.
To help you address the areas of improvement or concern within your analysis practises it is important to make use of effective quality control materials between proficiency testing rounds, to maintain your testing accuracy across a range of testing environments. Fapas quality control materials make use of real food matrices to provide true to life representation of your testing activities.
