Interlaboratory study for effect-based in vitro methods to detect estrogenic activity
The interlab study at a glance
This study is designed as an interlaboratory comparison exercise to provide information on comparability and reproducibility of the in vitro methods used and goes beyond the scope of a classical proficiency test. This interlaboratory comparison approach is therefore interesting for accredited and non-accredited laboratories.
Within this study the following kind of samples will be analyzed:
An aqueous extract from a food or personal care product
A surface water sample spiked with a strong estrogenic compound to gain a EEQ of approx. 10 to 50 ng/L.
For the registration process and the submission of the results QuoData provides the EQA Biotests web portal.
The introductory price for the first round of the interlaboratory study is 300,- € and refers to the participation per method which is included in the overall evaluation.
