Basic quality systems for juice laboratories
The IFU methods collection holds a comprehensive list of procedures that have been specifically developed and validated for fruit and vegetable juice products. This is not always the case with other methods.
Having the appropriate IFU method is a good start but there are additional challenges to ensure a method is appropriately applied in the laboratory or factory environment.
IFU recommendation number 15 has been published by the Methods of Analysis Commission to assist Laboratory Managers as to the type of checks and controls they should consider adopting to ensure their lab produce reliable data.
It includes topics on:
- Training records
- Servicing / calibration
- Quality Assurance samples
- QA sample analysis and charts
- Performance analysis schemes
- Data management
