I'm not currently using x-ray as a CCP or preventive control for bone specifically, but I do have an x-ray in place already, and I believe I can make production more efficient by eliminating bone at this point in my process. Unfortunately, none of the major suppliers I'm aware of are able to provide a meaningful response to my inquiries, and I can't seem to find anyone that sells a traceable standard for bone.
I have a few questions:
- How relevant is the species from which the bone originated, assuming it will be significantly more dense than the heterogeneous product it's being compared to by the x-ray (e.g. soups and stews)
- Is there a material that industry and regulators have agreed is an acceptable analogue to bone for the purposes of in-process verification?
- Does anyone have a recommendation for where the best place would be to continue my search for a test standard that is both traceable and could be used for validation and in-process verification that bone detection is working?
Thanks in advance!
