Interlaboratory Comparison on POPs in Food 2019
The 20th round of the interlaboratory comparison study on the determination of PCDDs/PCDFs, PCBs and brominated flame retardants in three food items were conducted in spring of 2019. A fourth food item was designated for the determination of PFAS. Here is the final report of the POPs in Food-2019 study.
The objectives were to assess the in-between laboratory reproducibility, to offer a quality assurance instrument for the participating laboratories, and to assess the readiness of expert laboratories worldwide to determine low levels of POPs in food. Here is the final report of the POPs in Food-2019 study.
