BIPEA is launching a new interlaboratory test (PTS 101D) that permits laboratories to detect Listeria spp and Listeria monocytogenes on stainless steel plate samples. For this first round, BIPEA will offer three samples of stainless steel plate and participating laboratories will have to detect or not, Listeria spp and Listeria monocytogenes parameters according to reference methods (ISO 18593 & ISO 11290-1) or alternative ones.
This test is scheduled in March 2023.
BIPEA provides a wide range of proficiency tests and external reference materials for testing laboratories concerned by quality control and analytical accuracy in various fields (environment, food, surface, cosmetics, pharmaceutics).
To learn more about the “PTS 101D: Microbiological testing of surfaces – Sampling and detection of Listeria“, as well as the full range of interlaboratory tests, please feel free to contact BIPEA: www.bipea.org
