Over 25 Years of Experience in Proficiency Testing

We can test within soya flour, maize flours, and animal feed (among others) for the presence of Genetic Modifications; giving you peace of mind to maintain the utmost confidence in your testing activities.

Genetic Modification Tests

Materials and Products Tested

In order to protect the quality of food intended for human consumption and animal feed, in 2003 the EU introduced legislation controlling the use of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs). In light of this there is increasing pressure on laboratories to ensure that reliable and accurate analysis is carried out and ensure compliance with legislative controls. Our Fapas programme tests for the following:

  • Mixed, Soya, and Maize flours
  • Processed and Baked Products
  • Animal Feed


We are the original and most highly respected proficiency testing service available, proudly celebrating our 25th anniversary in 2015.

Over the years we have helped thousands of our customers monitor, control and demonstrate the value of their quality control processes. Our detailed reports and online resources allow our customers to compare the performance of their own individual laboratory and methods against those of other laboratories world-wide and to trend their historical performance data.

Bespoke Testing

If you feel we don't offer the test you need, please contact us to discuss bespoke tests for your individual needs.

Bespoke schemes allow customers a variety of ways of commissioning proficiency tests to their own specification, and many companies choose to include their laboratories in one of our ready scheduled tests. We have also organised closed schemes for a variety of laboratories commissioned by both government organisations and private industry.
