Sub-Group

GMO - Proficiency Testing for Detection of Transgenic Tobacco - 2004

Objectives

  1. To establish a Proficiency Testing Scheme to enable participants to monitor their laboratory testing performance by means of interlaboratory comparisons of analytical results obtained by using appropriate PCR methods for the detection of GM tobacco.
  2. To provide an independent assessment of the quality of data being produced by participating laboratories, through the Tobacco Proficiency Testing Scheme.

The Proficiency Testing for Detection of Transgenic Tobacco (GMO) Sub-Group aims to monitor laboratory testing performance and independent assessment of data quality by means of interlaboratory comparisons of analytical results obtained by PCR methods for the detection of GM tobacco.

The objectives of the group were recently amended to more adequately represent its activities.
