Analytical method validation by data from proficiency testing - FS2906

Data amassed in FAPAS will be investigated in relation to analytical method performance. The information provided by laboratories in combination with their independantly assessed proficiencies will provide a powerful means of validating performance of methods at low cost.
The immediate beneficiaries of this research would be the food analysis community, who would be provided with realistic and inexpensive information on analytical method validation and performance. Food laboratories would then be able to optimise their resource usage by informaed choice among methods.
