MicroVal is an international certification organisation for the validation and approval of alternative methods for the microbiological analysis of food and beverages. MicroVal facilitates validation and certification against ISO 16140-2:2016, ISO 16140-6:2019 and other validation standards.
A MicroVal Certificate shows that a proprietary method performs equally well as the (internationally standardised) reference method.
Test kit manufacturers can apply for MicroVal certification. The certification consists of several steps that are laid down in the MicroVal rules by the MicroVal platform to ensure standardized processed and evaluation.
The MicroVal validation studies are performed by MicroVal reviewed expert laboratories. A test kit manufacturer can select one of these expert laboratories.
