Microbiological reference materials

Petriskålar

The National Food Agency provides microbiological reference materials. These are used for internal control of analyses on laboratories and act as a complement to the proficiency testing programs.
There are different types of reference materials with freeze dried mixtures of microorganisms with no matrices. The freeze dried material, which is to be dissolved in a diluent, can be used for control of multiple parameters at the same time.
