Additional participants are needed for a collaborative (multi-laboratory validation) study of the AOAC 2018.03 First Action method for the determination of 2- and 3-MCPD, 2- and 3-MCPD esters and glycidyl esters in infant and adult/pediatric nutritional formula by gas chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry. Study directors are planning to send the study protocol together with seven samples and a practice sample to the participating laboratories in Q1 2024, expecting results from the laboratories by the end of Q2 2024. Please contact Deborah McKenzie if you are interested in participating in this collaborative study to support moving this First Action method to the Final Action status.
