The Laboratory Proﬁciency Rating Program provides an essential tool for food and feed laboratories worldwide. Established in 1948, the Program enables subscribers to assess and meet their quality standards by evaluating accuracy and consistency of laboratory results. It oﬀers check samples of current interest, proﬁciency rating reports and awards.
Participation in a proﬁciency rating program is a key quality requirement for testing laboratories at all stages of the food supply chain. This program can be used to ensure the accuracy of labeling information, verify laboratory equipment operation and monitor the use of correct analytical techniques by laboratory personal. It can also be used to identify opportunities to improve laboratory quality and to monitor the reliability of contract laboratories.
We oﬀer a variety of check samples pertaining to analyses of current interests that enable laboratories to:
- Verify Laboratory Equipment Operation
- Monitor the Use of Correct Analytical Techniques by Laboratory Personnel
- Verify the Reliability of Contract Laboratories
- Ensure the Accuracy of Labeling Information
- Identify Opportunities to Improve Laboratory Quality
We oﬀer various check samples to meet diverse laboratory needs including an analytical series, physical testing series, and food quality & safety series. A description of the check samples oﬀered within each of these series can be found here. Pricing subject to change without notice.
