Designing effective sampling plans for mycotoxin detection in food commodities is a complex task.
This Mycotoxin Sampling Tool provides support in analysing performance of sampling plans, and determining the most appropriate plan to meet user’s defined objectives:
- The user can evaluate the effect of varying sampling plan design parameters, such as sample size, on the performance of the sampling plan.
- Using the performance information, the user can determine the most appropriate mycotoxin sampling plan to minimize risk of misclassifying lots considering available resources.
The USER GUIDE provides step by step guidance on how to use the Mycotoxin Sampling Tool in 26 mycotoxin-commodity combinations.
