Where do we stand in August?
VLB ring trial values and Glycospot’s contribution.
Quality control in food production.
Quality control in food production is not only about rectifying defects in finished products. Key parameters that define the performance of food raw materials, like the amylase activity in malted barley, are of great importance to malthouses, breweries and distilleries. At GlycoSpot, we have developed a range of malt specific amylase test methods, that set a new standard for ease of use in the laboratory. Ease of use is great as it contributes to a better working environment, but we are well aware that content rules. In this case, content equals method accuracy and standard variation.
GlycoSpot takes great pride in attending international ring trials. In the past we have done this occasionally but going forward we will join the monthly ring trials organized by IFBM, MAPS and VLB around Europe.
GlycoSpot is spot on.
The results confirmed, what we already knew. We understand content and deliver highly accurate measurements.
In the August trials, GlycoSpot was only 4 °WK from the mean result of the ring trial of 285 °WK with a 12 °WK standard deviation threshold. When ranked by the statistical parameter Z-score (the difference between a data point and the mean result), GlycoSpot ranked 1st out of 7.
For alpha-amylase, GlycoSpot was also only 4 DU from the mean result of the ring trial of 53 DU, with a 5 DU standard deviation tolerance. GlyoSpot ranked 4th out of 9, according to the z-score.
