NordVal er etablert som et Nordisk organ for å validere alternative mikrobiologiske metoder (test kits).

NordVal er en uavhengig, 3. part som evaluerer kvalitets karakteristikker og anvendelsesområder for alternative mikrobiologiske metoder innenfor analyser av næringsmidler, vann, fôr og miljøprøver.

Sven Qvist er utnevnt som prosjektleder for NordVal.

NordVal - an independent third-party, reviewing alternative methods

 

An accepted NordVal validation assures test kits users and producers that an independent assessment of a kit’s performance characteristics is found to be in compliance with its claims, demonstrating equal performance with its reference method.

 

NordVal offers:

·        A user-friendly validation protocol

·        Scientific confirmation policies

·        Specified acceptance criteria

·        Independent and rapid approval procedures

·        Guidance in the validation process

 

In March 2007, the secretariat of NordVal was taken over by NMKL, the Nordic Committee on Food Analysis. NordVal will continue its work under the framework of NMKL. NMKL consists of chemists, microbiologists, sensory analysts and statisticians from the five Nordic countries: Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden. The members are appointed experts representing food control authorities, food research institutes, national reference laboratories and the food industry.

Sven Qvist is the projectleader for NordVal.
