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 quality control material is useful for laboratories analysing fat-soluble pesticide residues in animal products and plant-derived fats or oils looking to maintain their testing ability through quality assurance activities between proficiency testing rounds.

Pesticide residues (fat soluble) analysis, with a number of residues present from a list of possible target compounds. This quality control material 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. Quality control materials should be utilised to ensure the highly accurate testing ability required is safeguarded throughout the year through effective staff training exercises and instrumentation calibration activities.

Fapas quality control materials make use of real food matrices from which to ensure direct comparisons can be made between your routine analysis and quality control results. From these insights your testing abilities can be safeguarded across the year to ensure the accuracy of your results is maintained through staff training activities and instrumentation calibration activities.
