Livsmedel - Analys av bestrålade livsmedel med hjälp av DEFT/APC - Screeningmetod
This European Standard specifies a microbiological screening method for the detection of irradiation treatment of herbs and spices, using the combined direct epifluorescent filter technique (DEFT) and aerobic plate count (APC). The DEFT/APC technique is not radiation specific, therefore, it is recommended to confirm positive results using a standardised method (e.g. EN 1788, prEN 13751) to specifically prove an irradiation treatment of the suspected food. The method has been successfully tested in interlaboratory tests with herbs and spices  to .
