Perchlorate will be present. Any number of analytes (at low level based on EU-MRLs) from the remainder of the list may be present for identification and quantification.

Pesticide residues are regulated in many countries and for many commodities, with maximum residue limits set within EU and other legislation. Pesticide residues can translocate across the food chain and into animal products. This proficiency test is for laboratories analysing fat-soluble pesticide residues in animal products and plant-derived fats or oils.

Pesticide residues (fat soluble) analysis, with a number of residues present from a list of possible target compounds. This proficiency test requires identification and quantification of the analytes.

Infant formula is consumed by infants within a critical development phase of their lives. This therefore requires extensive guarantees of the high quality, non-contaminated nature of their foodstuffs. Proficiency testing should be utilised to ensure the highly accurate testing ability required is safeguarded throughout the year.

Proficiency testing activities should be undertaken as part of a well-designed quality assurance programme. Fapas proficiency tests make use of real food matrices from which to ensure direct comparisons can be made between your routine analysis and proficiency test results.
