The participation of the labs in activities of proficiency testing is one of the results quality control mechanisms because it allows, through different labs comparisons:
- compare your lab’s performance to other similar labs;
- obtain data that serve as subsidy for preventive action care in order to improve procedures;
- obtain information about performance features of analytical methods.
With that in mind, we brought to Brazil CIPEA (Analytical Studies Inter Professional Committee), a proficiency tests program organized by Granotec Argentina in partnership with Granolab | Granotec do Brasil, which counts on over 100 labs participation in 11 different countries, performing the main flour tests, such as: Humidity, Ashes, Gluten, Protein, Falling Number, and Alveograph with bi-monthly or quarterly frequency.
