QuoData Quality & Statistics is a medium-sized company based in Berlin and Dresden and active in the areas of statistics and analytical quality assurance. Drawing on state-of-the-art statistical methods, we develop software products and provides services for a host of international clientele.
Quality assurance concerns the reliability of your
- production process
- measurement method/instrument
In other words, quality assurance is essential for you to obtain and maintain your customers' trust.
Statistical methods play a central role in all questions relating to quality assurance. Our expertise in the application of these methods translates to greater efficiency, hence to reduced costs - which is what you're interested in.
QuoData is constantly broadening its expertise and business portfolio. Close collaboration with leading scientific institutions guarantees that its methods and procedures are always up-to-date.
QuoData is committed to the highest professional standards in all its activities. The continuous growth of its clientele over and beyond European borders vouches for its success.
QuoData is your competent partner and consultant on matters relating to
- quality assurance and the optimization of measurement methods
- statistical modelling
- software development
- interlaboratory tests
- development of bioassays
Our competence in each of these core areas is underpinned by our expertise in the application of statistical methods and our extensive experience in cooperation with scientific institutions and other partners/customers.
QuoData - We Let Your Data Speak
QuoData regularly attends events of the scientific community all over the world to present novel approaches for analytical quality assurance and establish further contacts.
132nd AOAC Annual Meeting & Exposition: 26 - 29 August 2018
At this meeting in Toronto, Canada, leading scientists met to discuss a variety of analytical requirements and new standards in the field of quality assurance. The CEOs of QuoData were also present.
In cooperation with German Federal Office of Consumer Protection and food safety (BVL), QuoData has established the Nouws Antibiotic Test (NAT) in its own laboratory and carried out a factorial in-house validation with real samples (pig kidneys). In the future the NAT method could replace the three-plate inhibitor test (DPT) which currently used in Germany.
The need for method validation in terms of experimental design, data analysis, performance evaluation and competence determination is increasing with the growing number of available methods for qualitative analyses.
If you would like to deepen your knowledge in the field of analytical quality assurance, you can do so at QuoData’s upcoming workshop on interlaboratory studies:
Workshop for the evaluation of proficiency tests and method validation studies with PROLab
The standardization process of A-YES (ISO 19040-2 "Water quality - Determination of the estrogenic potential of water and waste water - Part 2: Yeast Estrogen Screen (A-YES, Arxula adeninivorans))" has been completed.
For this reason the A-YES test procedure is a valid ISO standard for measuring the estrogenic potential of water and it is commercially available in various A-YES® test kit versions at new_diagnostics.
In August and September QuoData will participate in two events.
There QuoData's Data Scientists will present new solutions for analytical quality assurance, in particular for interlaboratory tests and method validation studies, which are based on tailored mathematical-statistical approaches and powerful web tools.
Fourteen participants deepened their understanding of interlaboratory studies during the workshop from 13 - 15 June 2018 held in Dresden.
This international Round Robin Test provided participants with information on their performance in emission tests according to the GEV Testing Method. This is used to determine volatile organic compounds for the characterisation of emission-controlled substances (e.g. adhesives, building products, mineral soils). In addition, the study allows a statement on the variability of the test results when using the GEV Testing Method in different testing laboratories.
In addition to the development of software and concepts for analytical quality assurance, QuoData also provides individual in-house workshops and training. Topics, training materials and examples are always adapted to the field of application of the participants.
Often food is still edible after the best before date, but is still sorted out by the consumer.
On the other hand storage conditions that are not optimal can shorten the shelf life.
A joint research project funded by the German Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture (BMEL) is to find a remedy.
