Pesticide Residues in Olive Oil Blank Quality Control Material

This blank quality control material is ideal to ensure effective calibration curves are created. This can ensure only high-quality test results are found, and can be used to compare and contrast with the adjoining proficiency test for pesticides in olive oil to ensure only high-quality test results are offered to consumers. 

Pesticide Residues are used extensively across a range of crops, including olive oil. These are used with the goal of maintaining high quality produce by controlling disease and pest impacts on crops. Through good farming practises levels of pesticide residues are usually low and under safe levels. Yet as farmers come under increasing pressure to satisfy growing demand for more expensive produce such as olive oils, poor farming practises may increase levels of pesticide residues exposed to consumers. This must be controlled through the use of effective quality control measures.

Olive oil has extensive research into its health benefits, with a larger proportion of monounsaturated fatty acids compared to other substitutes. As such it is in large demand with consumers, from which to ensure only high-quality testing methods are used to ensure your customers enjoy credible, repeatable test results.

Through the use of blank materials within your proficiency tests the ease of comparison within your calibration curve is greatly improved. This can allow you to focus on the testing process itself, from which to highlight any areas of improvement which may be required.

Fapas quality control materials can be used to validate whether a testing instrument or process is operating within pre-defined specifications. This validation process makes sure your test results are as close to the true value as possible, and therefore your testing process is a credible as it can be.
