The DRRR has concluded a far reaching cooperation with the IfL. The main focus of this cooperation is the development and commercialisation of long term calibration materials for the food economy.

The developed materials were merchandised with the name STANDARON® . With the cooperation arises a range of services that offers not only regional but also national both in North and South Germany a competent reference system for raw milk analysis. Therewith it also offers more advantages and reliabilities for our international customers.

The cooperation could already prove its competence at the new introduced STANDARON® raw cream materials. The quality advantage of the materials has been clearly confirmed at linearity, precision and stability. Besides standard materials is a focus of the cooperation to produce tailor-made, customer-oriented materials which are specially designed to cover individual production processes. STANDARON® long-term calibration materials (LKM) for raw milk, raw cream and pasteurised milk will be used for the calibration of IR instruments.

The reference values of STANDARON® materials were defined by selected “reference laboratories”. These laboratories are proved according to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025 in line with the accreditation process of the German accreditation body DAkkS.
