BioFront Technologies Partners with Fera

BioFront Technologies has announced that Fera Science Limited has appointed the company as its U.S. agent for its proficiency testing service, Fapas. These services and products include an extensive range of matrix-matched reference materials as well as the comprehensive proficiency testing portfolio.                   

The partnership will mean that American customers of Fera will be able to order their Fapas proficiency testing samples and other services directly from BioFront Technologies, helping to ensure laboratories have access to consistent proficiency testing and enhancing BioFront’s food allergen offering and its customer service.                    

The services and products available as a result of this exciting new partnership will enable testing laboratories across the globe to assess analytical performance of food, water, and environmental chemistry, genetically modified organisms and microbiology. They also aid with calibrating instrumentation, determining food fraud, assisting with new analyst training, validating standard and non-standard methods, and ultimately supporting laboratory accreditation programs such as ISO/IEC 17025/2005.                                                        

BioFront Technologies will also be amongst the first international agents to offer a new improved range of drinking water microbiology proficiency testing samples for the FAPAS 2017/2018 program.
