The staff members of the Laboratory for Microbiological Testing within the FGBI “Federal Center for Animal Health” subordinate to the Rosselkhoznadzor took part in two rounds of international proficiency tests organized by FAPAS (Great Britain).
Coded samples were tested for Salmonella presence and for the yeast and mold fungi cell number using conventional methods.
According to FAPAS final reports on PT results the Laboratory for Microbiological Testing identified all submitted samples correctly.
The z-score of the quantitative testing was 1.0 (z ≤ 2 means the results of testing are satisfactory).
The results obtained confirm high qualification level of the FGBI “ARRIAH” laboratory staff members and will enable to expand the scope of the international accreditation.
