Polyfluoroalkyl substances are a group of synthetic chemicals that have been manufactured and used in a variety of industries around the globe. These chemicals are very persistent in the environment – meaning they don’t break down and can accumulate over time. Furthermore, there is also evidence that exposure to PFAS can lead to adverse human health effects. It is therefore important to utilise our proficiency tests, which help you maintain consumer safety and highlight any potentially unsafe products.

Fish plays a large role within global protein intake. This can put a great deal of stress on an already strained global supply chain, leading to poor supply chain practises which can, in turn, lead to large consumer risks.

As part of Fapas proficiency tests our food chemistry proficiency test samples combine the test analytes into real food matrices to fully represent real-world samples. This allows direct comparisons to be made between your proficiency testing results and your current routine testing arrangement. Through this, timely improvements can be highlighted, from which to ensure high quality testing is offered to your customers which satisfies regulatory controls.
