Test Description

Microbiological contamination of food can cause a range of sickness symptoms, the most extreme of which can result in hospitalisation, contamination can also cause food spoilage. Contamination can result from raw ingredients, poor sanitation or hygiene practices, or inappropriate storage conditions.

This quantitative proficiency test focusses on evaluating your testing ability for the enumeration of yeasts in fruit juice.

Yeast contamination can be caused through poor storage practises. This risk can be increased through poor storage or manufacturing processes. As such it is imperative to highlight areas of improvement within your testing arrangement to maintain your high quality testing standards your customers have come to expect.

Fruit juices are consumed globally in vast quantities. This can put large amount of stress on the global supply chains responsible for satisfying this large demand.

Proficiency tests from Fapas are  ideal to benchmark your current testing arrangement from which to achieve a long term, high quality testing strategy by informing your quality assurance processes.

Our Food Microbiology proficiency test samples combine the test organisms into real food matrices or swabs, together with background flora to fully represent real-world samples.
