Study Monitors: AOAC International (SPIFAN) Official Method Board or delegated personnel. MLT Overview Participating laboratories were asked to set up the method (Appendix A), analyze two practice samples in duplicate, and report the results to the study directors. After successful analysis of the practice samples, study participants were asked to analyze 15 fortified and unfortified SPIFAN matrices in duplicate. The samples were split into two groups of 15 per the data reporting templates, and each group was analyzed on a separate day. Participants were asked to reconstitute all powder samples by diluting either 10 or 25 grams of powder to 100 or 225 grams respectively with water. Electronic excel templates for reporting sample weights and results were provided. After completion of the study, the data were analyzed using the AOAC International Interlaboratory Study Workbook for Blind (unpaired) Replicates, Version 2.1 to calculate repeatability standard deviation, s(r), reproducibility standard deviation, s(R), repeatability relative standard deviation, RSD(r), reproducibility relative standard deviation, RSD(R), and HORRAT value and to detect outliers.
