Additional interlaboratory comparisons



Customized collaborative studies to meet your requirements

AGLAE carries out customized interlaboratory comparisons or collaboratirve studies. These tests are requested by third parties (the French standardisation body AFNOR, Ministries, Water agencies, large groups of laboratories, etc.) in order to:

  • assess the performances dof a group of selected laboratories
  • characterise an analytical method
  • validate a method in order to, for example, standardise it
  • validate an alternative method in comparison with a reference method


Some examples that are not confidential:

  • In 2015, the regional health agency (ARS) of Poitou-Charentes asked AGLAE to organise an interlaboratory comparison on chloroacetamide metabolites.

This proficiency testing is now included in AGLAE's PT and the list of molecules provided has been extended: metabolites of chloroacetamides and of other pesticdes


  • Between 2012 and 2013, EDF-Ceidre commissioned AGLAE to conduct 21 interlaboratory comparisons on the chemical measurements subcontracted to Nuclear Electric Power Generation Centres in the field of chemical effluents / environment.

  • In 2012, AGLAE organised two proficiency tests for EDF-Ceidre : « Boron Depletion – monitoring of chemical specification regarding the isotopic ratio of boron in the Pool Test Reactor (PTR) of nuclear power plants » and « Measurement of nickel and zinc in waters from primary systems of nuclear power plants ».
