Brooks Rand Labs organized an interlaboratory comparison study for Arsenic Speciation in Food and Juice, in which 41 labs from around the world participated in. The study was initiated to provide a reliable means for laboratories to evaluate their methods for the analysis of difference forms of arsenic in rice, kelp, and apple juice.
