7Why do you need to Participate in Split Samples? When a CIS examines bulk milk tanker milk or its equivalent for Appendix N purposes, aminimum of eight (8) samples shall be analyzed utilizing the test kit(s) for which that CIS iscertified or approved, or for which the CIS is seeking certification. In general, the milksamples shall consist of the members of the beta-lactam family, at the safe/tolerance levels,which the test kit(s) is designed to detect as well as milk samples containing no animal drugresidues. The CIS may misidentify one of the samples and maintain and/or gain certification.If more than one sample is misidentified, the CIS falls one level of certification. If thisoccurs twice consecutively, the CIS is no longer certified or approved (rules forRecertification of laboratories apply).
8When are split samples performed? Split samples are held annually.Drug residue samples are normally distributed in May of each year.A schedule is sent each year to assure each analysts availability.Samples will be delivered by a dps (inspector).
