QuoData - We Let Your Data Speak
A paper with contributions of QuoData’s scientists is now published on the Journal of Veterinary Diagnostic Investigation. The paper describes an interlaboratory comparison (ILC), which was performed in collaboration of several institutions (including QuoData), to help the laboratories evaluate their SARS-CoV2 test methods.
SmartGrape - AI-based MIR measuring system for determining quality in viticulture
A new paper in Forensic Chemistry (Vol. 23, Elsevier) describes a study on Gunshot Residue that was sponsored by the European Union. GSR particles in various populations were compared on the basis of carbon stub samples from 1300 individuals.
Non-targeted approaches are being increasingly developed and adopted to detect food fraud. Thorough method validation is critical before using non-targeted methods routinely, to be assured of their performance.
A lack of well-structured and harmonized validation strategies has been one of the hurdles, withholding the broader adaptation of non-targeted methods. A novel paper aims to describe a validation framework for methods that involve binary classification, which are prevalent in non-targeted workflows.
"Estrogenic Effects" is the first EQA scheme in the new QuoData external quality assurance program for in vitro methods for effect-based analysis.

QuoData Web-Seminars 2021: Quality assurance in food microbiology, evaluation of proficiency tests and in-house validation
The popular QuoData web-seminars will take place again in 2021. The events, in which participation will only be possible online, deal with various topics of quality assurance. The web-seminars will focus in particular on:
Quality assurance in food microbiology
Validation, verification and determination of measurement uncertainty for Microbiologists -a QuoData webinar series providing expert knowledge for analytical quality assurance.
In recent years, a number of norms and standards have been developed to define approaches and procedures for quality assurance of microbiological test methods.
In their ongoing work, QuoData's scientists are pleased to share some of the recent developments in their latest paper - "AI-based identification of grain cultivars via non-target mass spectrometry". The paper deals with the use of non-target high-resolution mass spectrometry and the processing of the extensive data using artificial intelligence approaches.
The novel coronavirus has directly or indirectly affected everyone’s lives forcing people to embrace a new normal. Many experts predict that the pandemic is likely to have a continued impact, far beyond the ongoing distancing restrictions. Moving forward, QuoData believes that adapting and tweaking everyone’s personal and business decision-making process, by factoring different socio-economic aspects is the key.
