  Main food-borne infections in Europe and in the world are caused by Campylobacter jejuni and Campylobacter coli, the two most involved species of Campylobacteria. This is why, in 2018, BIPEA (Bureau Interprofessionnel d’Etudes Analytiques) launched a new proficiency testing scheme (PTS) to detect and enumerate Campylobacter species in poultry meat samples.

This proficiency test can be schematized by three main steps: preparation of homogeneous and stable samples, analyses by laboratories applying reference methods (ISO 10272 part 1 and 2 [1,2]) and/or alternative methods and statistical treatment of the data according to ISO 13528 standard [3].

Taking part in a proficiency-testing scheme allows laboratories to assess their performance for these analyses and compare their results with those from other laboratories. Therefore, these tests are crucial for laboratories to meet international ISO 17025 standard requirements [4].
