Abstract

Interlaboratory studies of analytical methods for residues of pesticides in foods may be of several types. Laboratories may each use exactly the same procedure on aliquots of the same homogeneous gross sample (sub-samples having been sent to each); these are termed collaborative studies. Secondly, laboratories may use their own routine procedure on aliquots of the same homogeneous gross sample (sub-samples having been sent to each); these are termed cooperative or checksample studies. Thirdly, laboratories may use several procedures on samples of their own and report “in-house” comparisons, termed assessments. Definitions of types of interlaboratory studies in the context of residues methods have been discussed in depth by Burke (1979).
