Test Description

Infant formula is consumed by infants at 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.

Pesticide residues can have large effects within many foodstuffs, and have special concern when found in infant foodstuffs, due to the larger food intake per kilogram of body weight than adults. This is strengthened by the less varied nature of infant diets compared to adults.

With maximum residue limits set within EU and other legislation, pesticide residues are regulated in many countries and for many commodities. As such effective testing is key. With Fapas quality control materials, standardised practices can be achieved to produce credible, repeatable test results. Fapas multi-residue quality control materials can challenge your laboratory processes to provide accurate testing quickly in both targeted and non-targeted ways, giving your customers confidence in their results.

Quality control is essential to building a successful business that delivers products that meet or exceed customers’ expectations. It also forms the basis of an efficient business that minimises waste and operates at high levels of productivity. Using our proficiency testing scheme will allow your laboratory to gain and maintain ISO/17025 accreditation.  We have been an accredited provider for over 25 years with an extensive range of proficiency tests available all year round with rigorous statistical feedback and comprehensive reporting with method and trend comparisons reported over many years.
