Creation of a digital platform to exchange on methods of analysis

2019 objectives

  • Develop a digital platform to facilitate the sharing of analytical methods
  • Compare methods used with the international official methods
  • Identify gaps with the analytical methods used
  • Determine improvement actions e.g. capacity building, method development, etc

´╗┐Digital analytical methods sharing platform

Who are the users?

  • Regulatory authorities and food control bodies
  • Industry
  • Contract Research Labs
  • Academia

What are the benefits?

  • Enables transparency of the methods laboratories use to quantify specific analytes in specific matrices
  • Allows comparison of analytical methods and their performance
  • Facilitate alignment and harmonisation of analytical methods
  • Allows the community to identify analytical methods development and capacity building needs
  • Facilitates consensus around whether an analytical method is fit for purpose

How does it work?
