Improved performance of neutron activation analysis laboratories by feedback workshops following interlaboratory comparison rounds.

Accredit Qual Assur 2021 14;26(3):157-164. Epub 2021 Jun 14.

NUQAM Consultancy, Zuid-Beijerland, The Netherlands.

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) implemented an innovative project for assisting neutron activation analysis laboratories in improving the validity of their results by feedback workshops for discussion of results from participation in interlaboratory comparisons rounds in 2010. The participants learned during these meetings to identify the most probable sources of errors in their analytical procedures and how to implement corrective actions to prevent reoccurrence. The outcome of successive rounds between 2010 and 2018 is discussed and experiences during the feedback workshops are given. Read More

The evaluation of the scoring systems: the fixed effects model under known variances.

Accredit Qual Assur 2016 ;21(4)

Chemical Sciences Division, National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), 100 Bureau Drive, Gaithersburg, MD 20899-8390, USA.

A number of scoring systems for proficiency testing and interlaboratory comparison are in use by the metrology community. The choice of scoring system for a given study is often based on the study coordinator's experience and anecdotal knowledge, perhaps attributable to a historic lack of detailed and formal explanation about the foundation of these systems. This has influenced the development of new scoring systems, some of them departing from the well-established hypothesis testing theory. Read More
