    The Belgian Federal Agency for the Safety of the Food Chain (FASFC) fixed acceptance criteria for microbiological inhibitor tests to be used for the testing of ex-farm milk on inhibitors as part of the regulatory quality programme. It concerns criteria regarding general test specifications, the test repeatability, the detection capabilities and the test robustness.
    Validation studies according to Commission Decision 2002/657/EC of newly developed microbiological inhibitor tests were performed at ILVO-T&V in order to check if they meet the criteria and hence could be added to the list of accepted tests. Following microbiological inhibitor tests were involved in the study: Delvotest SP-NT Accelerator, Eclipse 50, Charm Blue Yellow II, Eclipse 3G and Delvotest T.
