Test Description

This quality control material will allow you to evaluate your testing ability for a range of trace elements within canned crab meat. From this valuable areas of improvement can be found, as well as demonstrating your testing standards to regulators, and customers if required.

Contaminants are often found in food, either as a natural contaminant or a contaminant from production. Trace elements in foodstuffs are not always toxic, but should be strictly controlled. Many metals in trace quantities can prove beneficial when consumed; as such it is important to quantify accurately the levels of these analytes within crab meat to allow customers to make well informed and correct purchasing decisions.

Canned foods may also be at higher risk of contamination due to non-intentionally added substances being present within the crab meat, due to packaging migration. To allay this risk, accurate testing abilities are required to protect the consumer from potentially harmful foodstuffs.

Quality control materials are the perfect way to track your progress against a control. They are 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.
