[Webinar] Keeping Your Mycotoxin Results Honest: Why ISO 17034 Reference Materials Matter

Laboratory analysis by LC-MS/MS is one of the strongest tools at our disposal to protect feed and food from mycotoxin contamination. Analytical labs deliver extremely accurate results with real-world consequences for grain producers, grain traders, and producers of feed and food.

Yet how can labs confirm the accuracy of their measurements? Is there a way to guarantee that reference materials are of high quality and come from a competent producer?

In this webinar, the Romer Labs experts investigate ISO 17034-certified reference materials and their ability to fulfill the stringent requirements that ISO 17025-accredited labs have. ISO 17034-certified reference materials exhibit exceptionally high degrees of metrological traceability and feature precise data about homogeneity, stability and uncertainty.

You will also learn:

  • What ISO is and what it does
  • The reason for the ISO 17034 standard
  • The criteria that certified reference material producers have to fulfill, such as characterization, stability, and traceability
  • How ISO 17034 reference materials can help analytical labs, especially those with an ISO 17025 accreditation
