Tropane alkaloids in cereal based babyfood (P1913-RT)

PROOF-ACS offers a ring test related to low levels of tropane alkaloids.

Cereals based babyfood (100 g) is provided as test material. The cereal based babyfood consists of a flour, made of (for example) milled sorghum, cereals, rice and maize. The babyfood is spiked with low levels of hyoscyamine and scopolamine. Limits of quantification of at least 1 µg/kg are required for participation. 

The analytical data are assessed with respect to

  • the comparability of results (z-score), and
  • the trueness of results (70 to 120% of the spiked level).

Time schedule:

    1 July 2019
  • Dispatch of samples:
    16 September 2019
  • Deadline for reporting results:

The participation fee is 750 EUR.
Blank material (100 g of untreated babyfood) is available at a price of 70 EUR upon request.

All prices are valid plus the applicable VAT, as far as required by law.
