Poster Information
Abstract: In 2010 the proficiency tests consisted of a cereal mix, paprika powder, and green coffee naturally contaminated with OTA, a toxin produced by the moulds Aspergillus ochraceus and Penicillium verrucosum. The work in the poster details how Exact-Matching Double Isotope Dilution Mass Spectrometry (EMD-IDMS) was utilised by the Institute to assign values for the three materials.
Summary: The European Union-Reference Laboratory for Mycotoxins at the Institute of Reference Materials and Measurements of the Joint Research Centers of the European Commission regularly conducts proficiency tests to assess the measurement capabilities of the National Reference Laboratories of the EU-Member States.
