ODOUR TESTING – PROFICIENCY TEST SUCCESS
SILSOE ODOURS TESTING LABORATORY ACHIEVES STRONG RESULTS
Every year, our lab at Silsoe Odours takes part in the international inter-laboratory comparison of olfactometry. Olfasense GmbH organises this ’round robin’ proficiency test. They analyse the precision and accuracy of our odour testing, compared to other laboratories across Europe.
Once again, this year we gained excellent results which support our UKAS accredited status. The outcome shows that we adhere to the requirements of European standard BSEN13725. So, you can continue to be confident in the high quality of our testing results.
PRECISION AND ACCURACY
This year, the round-robin analysed odour testing at 39 laboratories from 16 different countries. 64.1% of these complied with the requirements of EN13725 for both precision and accuracy. This, of course, included Silsoe Odours. These results support our UKAS accredited status. They also highlight the high quality of our laboratory data. We are committed to continuous excellence and so we are delighted to see this reflected in the round-robin results for another year.
