AOAC Expert Reviewer Logo

AOAC Expert Reviewer
An expert AOAC reviewer is a recognized expert in a specific area of science. AOAC & AOAC-RI employ these reviewers in the process of analytical comparison and validation. They are a unique set of individuals recognized by their peers as expert in their respective fields.

A diagnostic or method developer compiles a method study including internal data and the independent laboratory data into a formatted manuscript. Completed manuscripts and method package inserts/ user instructions are submitted to AOAC RI which then facilitates the review process of the document. Documents are reviewed by a minimum of an AOAC Official Methods Program expert and two expert reviewers.

The expert reviewers examine the internal and independent data. Reviewers also evaluate the data against the proposed method applicability and the package insert information. Documents may be revised based on reviewer comments. After two cycles, the reviewers are required to render their recommendations for approval.
