Determination of Tropane Alkaloids (atropine and scopolamine) in cereals, cereal products, herbal infusions and tea
The European Union Reference Laboratory for Mycotoxins organises a proficiency test on the determination of tropane alkaloids (atropine and scopolamine) in cereals and cereal products as well as in herbal infusions and tea.
The background for this PT is to underpin the measurement capacity of laboratories concerning the upcoming EU legislation on tropane alkaloids in food by April 2016. Laboratories that do not have a method for atropine and scopolamine in cereal based products can be supplied with a suitable method description upon request.
The performance of the participants will be rated by z-scores and zeta-scores.
Competent laboratories whether having already the method implemented or not are welcome to participate.
