NEW Fapas® 2020/21 Programme Price Lists Now Available:
Fapas Proficiency Testing - All Programmes Price List
Proficiency testing is an essential part of laboratory quality assurance and participation is an expected requirement of ISO 17025 accreditation. Fapas proficiency testing provides an independent assessment of your laboratory performance and compares your results to laboratories worldwide.
Food Chemistry Price List
Fapas® is a leading provider of proficiency testing and runs a programme of over 600 tests every year in this area with a high number of participants, ensuring robust and reliable results you can make informed decisions from. We also use real food samples wherever possible to mimic true-to-life working scenarios.
Food Microbiology Price List
Our test materials are designed to simulate real laboratory samples with varying levels of target organisms and background flora, providing a more realistic challenge than some proficiency programmes. Our matrices include cheese, beef, chicken, fish, milk powder, salad, rice and others.
Genetifically Modified Price List
Where GM foods are controlled or prohibited, it is important that laboratories testing for the presence of GM are able to detect the modified material. The Fapas® GM proficiency testing materials provide laboratories with the means to independently demonstrate their ability to correctly analyse for the most commonly encountered GM crops, such as maize and soya.
Water & Environmental Chemistry Price List
Increasing legislation controlling permitted levels of agricultural contaminants such as fertiliser run-off and over-sprayed herbicides and pesticides means it has never been so important to ensure laboratory analysis of these potentially harmful substances is as accurate as possible. Typically present at low concentrations, they can still impact on the ecosystem and cause damage.
Water & Environmental Microbiology Price List
The Fapas® water and environmental microbiology scheme covers all the common indicator organisms for drinking water, as well as Legionella spp. in environmental (cooling) waters and common water parasites associated with water treatment failure (Cryptosporidium). The programme also covers water quality tests for swimming pool and spa waters and tests for outdoor bathing waters whether they are swimming lakes or beach bathing.
Highlights of the New Tests for 2020/21
We continue to expand the range of analytes available in our test materials to simulate as far as possible a real-world challenge. We have expanded the range of B vitamins that can be analysed in powdered baby food and will be offering a multiple test material for aerobic plate count (APC) Enterobacteriaceae, Coliforms, and E.coli in milk powder. Combining several analytes into one multi-analyte PT material saves time for the laboratory as well as providing improved cost effectiveness.
