The EURL Berlin is planning to organise two proficiency tests in 2022. Scheduled for the first and second quarter is a proficiency test on the determination of beta-agonists in bovine urine (BETA0422). Participating laboratories will be provided with 3-4 incurred samples containing an unknown number and amount of beta-agonists. The test items are projected to ship in April.
The EURL Berlin’s second PT in 2022 is planned for the third and fourth quarter. As regards the substance group of interest, there are currently two options. The PT will either deal with the analysis of coccidiostats in liver or the analysis of nitroimidazoles in porcine muscle. The laboratory network will be informed which PT will be organised as soon as a decision has been taken. Further details on all PTs will be announced in due time.
