Proficiency testing is conducted to provide laboratories with a powerful tool to evaluate and demonstrate the reliability of the data that are produced. Next to validation and accreditation, proficiency testing is an important requirement of the EU Additional Measures Directive 93/99/EEC  and is required by ISO 17025:200. The proficiency test for tropane alkaloids was organized by RIKILT, Wageningen UR in accordance with ISO 17043. The primary goal of this study was to provide laboratories with the opportunity to implement a method in their laboratory and to evaluate or demonstrate their performance regarding quantitative analysis of tropane alkaloids in cereals intended for human consumption and in animal feed.

A large number of wild and cultured plants produce secondary metabolites that are toxic to humans and animals. Through accidental or intentional mixing of these plants with normal food and feed the consumers of these products will be exposed to the toxins. In this report tropane alkaloids will be discussed.
