Abstract: Near infrared microscopy (NIRM) has been proved to be a powerful tool for the detection of banned meat and bone meal (MBM) in feed. The identification of MBM traces and its unequivocal differentiation from vegetable feed ingredients is based on the evaluation of NIR spectra taken from individual particles present in the sample. This evaluation is supported by appropriate decision rules for the absorbances at specific wavelengths. Here we show that the method and the corresponding decision rules can be successfully transferred from the laboratory which constructed the decision rules to two independent laboratories that were not involved in the calibration process of the method. The analytical results from blind positive and negative feed samples revealed a very good agreement between the three laboratories, thus demonstrating the transferability of the method.
