Autre titre : Rapport de mission de consultant à la Philippine Coconut Authority (PCA), Quezon City, Manille, Philippines, du 11 au 31 mai 1999. Installation et mise en fonctionnement opérationnel du laboratoire d'analyse de tissus végétaux de la Philippine Coconut Authority

Abstract : The building of the laboratory is conforming the layouts and facilities described in the report mission of October 1995. However, later a third floor extension has been decided. The works have to be done without any disturbance for the PTAL laboratory. The delivery of the equipment is now completed, with some minor defects without consequence for the operation. The tests of the equipment are satisfactory, except for the elemental analyser which needs some more adjustments to be operational. For the ICP spectrometer, the typical relative standard deviation (%RSD) is between 1 and 2%. This spectrometer is steady and easy to use. The test of the atomic absorption spectrometer was made by analysing 20 mineralization solutions of the same sample. The %RSD was 1.72%. This result, obtained without the sampler, is good. For the colorimeter, the typical %RSD is lower than 1%. Detailed results and error computation are in the annexe of the report. The training and mission program was revised because of the end of the project in December 1999. Two trainings will take place in June (Perkin-Elmer in Malaysia) and probably in August (Bran & Luebbe in Germany). some other trainings (LIMS and computer, quality management) will be organised out of the project. The laboratory is expected to be fully operational by October, but it is already able to process the leaves analyses. The third consultancy mission is scheduled in October 1999 (two weeks).
