Test Description

Fapas can aid your efforts and offers the widest range of analyte/matrix proficiency test combinations for the food sector.

Within these tests the matrix will change between each test covering Pork, Beef, Chicken, Processed Meat to continually challenge your testing abilities in multiple scenarios and environments.

These meat based meals continue to grow in popularity as consumers have less time to cook from raw ingredients. Therefore increasingly effective testing is needed to provide accurate results for both consumer choice and product safety. 

This meat based meal is part of Fapas' commitment to real food matrices and as such contains sauces and other culinary additions to the sample, challenging your laboratory to react to deal with the real life testing situations that will inevitably occur within routine day-to-day testing.
