When assessing wine quality an extensive amount of analysis is required. This can include a range of metals analysis, as well as nutritional elements, alcohol levels and congeners.

As a result, this proficiency test is designed to effectively challenge your current testing abilities across a full range of analytical techniques. Through these challenging test materials, key insights into your testing practices can be highlighted, to further maintain your test ability across a range of testing environments.

The continued consumption of wine across the globe has resulted in fierce competition between wine producers, with quality continuing to be a deciding factor of economic success. As a result, your testing ability across quality indicators provides valuable data for your customers when meeting their key strategic objectives.

Fapas quality control materials are useful to ensure ongoing assessment of your testing ability. This can ensure your testing measures are maintained between proficiency testing activities, and in turn any improvements can be actioned accordingly to safeguard the testing ability of your laboratories and staff. This can be through both instrumentation calibration and staff training activities.
