The Data Scientists of QuoData continually develop new approaches for the interpretation of proficiency testing data or novel PT programs. The focus of QuoData is to provide PT participants more detailed insights for ongoing improvement of their performance. The experts of QuoData are constant on the way to present new ideas and to exchange with the international PT community.
QuoData can look back at more than 20 years of experience in the planning and evaluation of proficiency tests (PT). As part of a project of the European Commission, a Data Scientist of the QuoData shared his experience and basics in the evaluation of proficiency tests with selected food safety scientists from 22nd – 26th May 2017 in Mumbai, India.
QuoData staff attended the IAFP Europe Symposium on Food Safety in Brussels from 29-31 March 2017. QuoData’s data scientist Bertrand Colson was invited to give a talk on an integrated approach to process qualification which was well received.
QuoData will be attending IAFP's 13th European Symposium on Food Safety from 29-31 March in Brussels. One of the most experienced data scientist and statisticians of QuoData, Bertrand Colson, has been invited to give a presentation on an integrated approach to process qualification.
The presentation will take place Friday, 31 March, T8-06 “Modeling and Risk Assessment 2” in rooms 314-316 at 9:45 a.m.
QuoData's 2017 international workshop on proficiency testing and interlaboratory method validation studies, which took place in Berlin for the first time, was well-received.

The international proficiency test for forensic laboratories on identification of gunshot residue (GSR) by means of Scanning Electron Microscopy coupled with Energy Dispersive X-ray Spectroscopy (SEM/EDS) will begin shortly.
In 2017, QuoData will participate in a series of scientific conferences focusing on analytical quality assurance and will also offer workshops on external and internal quality control.
From 22-24 February in Berlin, QuoData will offer an international Workshop on the planning and evaluation of proficiency tests and method validation studies.
The new location in Berlin makes it easier for PT providers and the growing PROLab community worldwide to attend the workshop. All participants can still expect the well-known QuoData workshop atmosphere.
All 2016/2017 dates for QuoData’s roster of workshops have been finalized. What's new this year is the addition of a brand new workshop. It will focus on method validation from an expert’s point-of-view.
QuoData will be in Ghent, Belgium from May 9th to 10th for the EURACHEM Method Validation – Current Practices and Future Challenges Workshop to present a joint research project carried out by QuoData on behalf of the German Office of Consumer Protection and Food Safety (BVL). The presentation will showcase the unique use of a factorial design for an in-house method validation study.
