Certified Reference Material for Staphylococcal Toxin A in Cheese
The European Commission's science and knowledge service the Joint Research Centre has developed and made available for release the first certified reference materials for testing whether Staphylocoocal Enterotoxin A (SEA), is present in cheese and are designed to improve the reliability of measuring SEA in cheese at sub nanogram/gram levels.
The three new reference materials IRMM-359a-c (a blank and two SEA-containing materials) were developed in accordance with ISO Guide 34 and characterised by laboratories adhering to ISO/IEC 17025. These reference materials will help laboratories in method validation and method performance verification, and they will increase the reliability of measuring SEA in cheese at sub nanogram/gram levels. The certification report and the certificates are available in the JRC reference materials catalogue.
