The importance of using Certified Reference Materials
Outbreaks of pathogens such as Listeria, Salmonella, Escherichia coli, and Cronobacter sakazakii are regularly reported by Food Safety News. It is a nightmare for any company if products have been contaminated with pathogens and the population’s health is at risk. The result is a recall, a bad reputation, and many costs involved. Of course, you want to avoid this, but how?
A part of the solution to reduce this risk is to use Certified Reference Materials (CRM) in your microbiological laboratory examinations. By using CRM regularly, you can act quickly if there are problems with the analysis and solve the problem in an early stage. In addition, it gives you confidence that you are reporting reliable results day after day.
