ASBC Laboratory Proficiency Program (LPP) is an important quality tool for laboratories testing brewing raw materials and the final brewed products. Participation in an LPP is one of the few ways in which a laboratory can compare its performance with that of other laboratories. Formerly known as the Check Sample Service, the ASBC recently revised and re-launched its LPP with a new online interface and statistical reports. The webinar will serve as an introduction to the available programs for both new and continuing subscribers as well as benefits for your laboratory and use the reports to improve your laboratory performance.
