Quality Control Materials

FAPAS quality control test materials are real food matrices with one or more properties that have been sufficiently well established from the results of laboratories participating in a proficiency test to be used by laboratories as quality control materials.

Using the correct specimens, so stable and in sufficient quantity for measurements over a period of time, this ensures good working practice, so giving a similar response to the test pieces and others with zero or very low response (blank determinations). Generally these QC samples will be prepared on a routine basis by the measurement staff in accordance with procedures documented in the quality system.
