IAG-Proficiency Test for Animal Proteins in Feed
Dear Laboratory Managers,
On behalf of the board of the IAG Section Feed Microscopy we are pleased to announce the organisation of the 2023 proficiency test on animal proteins detection in feed by light microscopy.
Annual IAG proficiency tests are important for all official control laboratories and private companies laboratories seeking for performance assessment of the detection of animal proteins in feedingstuffs in particular with regards to the ISO/CEN 17025 requirements.
For years these tests were successively organised by Danish (DPD) and Dutch (WFSR) institutions. Last year a new collaboration was proposed ; from now on this IAG proficiency program will be organised by the Walloon Agricultural Research Centre (CRA-W).
On this page you will find the official invitation letter including some practical information as well as an application form to return by the 23rd January 2023 the latest to the organiser at the following address : firstname.lastname@example.org
For practical reasons the number of participants will be limited to a maximum of 60, therefore if your laboratory is willing to join this proficiency test we invite you to react promptly to this opportunity.
We are looking forward to your future participation.
Dr. Pascal Veys
SAVE THE DATE!
The next annual meeting of IAG section Feed Microscopy will be held from 13.-15. June 2023 in Kassel (Germany)
The IAG-board will cordially invite you to join the next annual IAG-meeting – this year organized by our colleague Britta Hertel from the Landesbetrieb Hessisches Landeslabor (LHL) in Kassel (Germany).
As the organization of this future meeting is just in the beginning information about the place and location will be published in time.
Take this great opportunity to meet your colleagues, to participate in exchange of information and discussions on relevant issues of important areas of microscopy.
Many thanks again to Britta Hertel and her team for the invitation and organisation – hopefully a face to face meeting – we will see!
