Test Description

Your testing ability for individual quinolones and fluoroquinolones, plus 'total quinolones' for the benefit of participants using ELISA test kits, will be evaluated across this quality control material within a chicken (hens) egg test material.

Animal products for human consumption are tightly legislated and closely monitored for compliance. Veterinary medicines used in animals are likely to have a pharmacological effect in humans. Hence, for many veterinary medicines, there are extremely low maximum residue limits or even no MRL (i.e. any detection is non-compliant). The Fapas proficiency test materials are produced in keeping with EU MRLs or minimum required performance limit (MRPL) where MRLs are not set. The result reporting requirements are also in keeping with quality control guidelines laid out in EC/657/2002. Fapas veterinary medicine quality control materials include incurred residues as well as fortified animal products.

Chicken eggs are consumed in vast quantities across the globe. This can put a large amount of strain on global supply chains, as well as creating real challenges for food testing laboratories to highlight any low quality or contaminated foodstuffs

Veterinary medicines are utilised as part of livestock management activities, allowing quality to be improved through disease mitigation, and therefore the financial success of producer’s livestock. Effective testing processes must therefore, be in place to highlight poor farming practices and highlight any excessive use of veterinary medicines, which can have a detrimental effect on the quality of foodstuffs passed to the consumer.

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.
