The National Food Agency has arranged proficiency testing programs for microbiology since 1981. The programs are approved by SWEDAC, the accreditation facility in Sweden, according to SS-EN ISO-IEC 17025 and SS-EN ISO-IEC 17043.
PT schemes for microbiology
|Rounds per year||Analysis of|
|Drinking water||2||cultivated microorganisms (total count), fecal indicators, coliform bacterias, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and micro fungi|
|Food||3||total count of aerobe microorganisms, indicators for Enterobacteriaceae, pathogens, micro fungi etc.|
Samples that have been tested for homogeneity are sent out to laboratories that have registered for participation. After analysis, the participating laboratories report their results before a deadline.
The results are then statistically analyzed and put together into a report which is published on the website.
Note! Dispatch of follow up samples will be limited during July due to summer holidays.
