September’s VLB ring trial results
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.
We reported 183 WK and the sample were assigned a value of 175 WK. This gives us a z-score of 0.67. The Standard deviation of all participants for this round was 12 WK. Based on the z-score we ranked #4 out of 9 participants.
We reported 48 DU and the sample were assigned a value of 47 DU. This gives us a z-score of 0,17.
The Standard deviation of all participants for this round was 6 DU. Based on the z-score we ranked (tied with 4 other labs) #1 out of 9 participants.
