This quality control material is for those laboratories analysing for nutritional elements with respect to regulated levels or compliance with labelling regulations who are looking to track their testing progress across a longer timescale. Nutritionally important elements might be present naturally or fortified in food products where this is beneficial to dietary requirements.
Essential nutritional elements calcium, copper, iodine, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, selenium and sodium are included within this quality control material. The large number of analytes being addressed within this proficiency test allows the flexibility of your testing arrangement to be evaluated to highlight any areas of improvement.
Infant formula forms an integral part of the nutritional intake of infants within this crucial development phase. It is vital to ensure nutritional claims are founded and to quantify the true nutritional values of infant foodstuffs.
To achieve this accurately over a long term testing scenario well-designed quality assurance activities should be undertaken. Fapas quality control materials can prove an invaluable asset in ensuring your testing ability meets both your customer and regulatory requirements across a range of testing environments. Through its use within staff training and instrumentation calibration activities areas of improvement can be quickly highlighted and implemented to ensure your results are fit for purpose.
