Determination of pyrrolizidine alkaloids in Honey and Plant Material
Institute for Reference Materials and Measurements organises a proficiency test on determination of pyrrolizidine alkaloids in honey and materials of plant origin.
The objective of this study is to evaluate laboratories' capability to determine the analytes. The study also aims at identifying methodological and/or analyte specific trends in the analysis.
One standard solution (of unknown content of PAs. The identity of the PAs will be indicated)
Two honey samples (of unknown PA content)
One plant material (of unknown PA content)
Participation is free of charge. Participants commit themselves to submit results within the deadlines.
Please note that for evaluation of methodological and/or analyte specific trends, it is crucial to have detailed information on the methodology used.
|Reporting of results:||6 weeks from sample dispatch|
