ODOUR TESTING – PROFICIENCY TEST SUCCESS
ODOUR TESTING LABORATORY ACHIEVES STRONG RESULTS
It’s that time of year again – results are in! Every year, our lab at Silsoe Odours takes part in the international inter-laboratory comparison of olfactometry. Or, as it’s a bit of a mouthful, the ’round robin’ proficiency test. It’s organised by Olfasense GmbH. They analyse the precision and accuracy of our odour testing, compared to other laboratories across the world.
In 2020, we earned excellent results once again, reinforcing 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.
Before we go on, why not take a look at this year’s proficiency test certificate.
PRECISION AND ACCURACY
This year, the round-robin analysed 36 laboratories from 16 different countries. 72.2% of these met with the requirements of EN13725 for both precision and accuracy. Obviously, this included Silsoe Odours, highlighting the exceptional quality of our laboratory data. We are committed to continuous excellence. With this in mind, we are delighted to see our hard work reflected in the round-robin results for another year.
