Mycotoxins in food

    Metrology for Safe Food and Feed in Developing Economies

    This project is designed to allow NMIs to work together to strengthen mycotoxin metrology infrastructure; provide knowledge transfer to scientists developing capabilities in this area, including periods as visiting scientists at the BIPM; and enable NMIs to provide mycotoxin calibrant and matrix reference materials and proficiency test materials to support mycotoxin testing laboratories within their countries.

    The project has support from a number of NMIs who are providing scientific expertise and raw materials to the project. The initial technical activities are focused on Mycotoxin Calibrants, with the BIPM hosting visiting scientists from participating NMIs, and providing appropriate training and knowledge transfer as well as mycotoxin reference materials for use in the project.
