SPSFAM Allergen Working  Group

Standard Method Performance  Requirements (SMPR) for Detection  and Quantitation of Selected Allergens

This group worked diligently between the annual  meeting in 2015 until the mid‐year meeting to identify  critical needs for allergen detection methods using  mass spec technology. This group is diverse in  perspective, encompassing representation from  regulators, food companies, industry and international  organizations. They have set a precedent for future  working groups to establish acceptance criteria for  assays that detect allergens using highly sensitive and robust  technologies
