ADDITIONAL TESTING SAMPLES: For costs and availability of additional test samples contact Qualitycheck (e-mail sales@qualitychecksrl.com)

ANALYSIS

The sample digestion must be used methods for the determination of the “Pseudo total” concentration (ex. ISO 11466, EPA 3051a, EPA 3050b or other equivalent methods).

For each measurand shall be reported one result.

ADDITIONAL RESULTS: Each participant can submit up to 5 results* for the same analyte, thus obtaining an evaluation of laboratory performance for different operators, instruments and/or test methods (e.g. operator 1/operator 2, instrument A/instrument B, etc..).

*: Only one result submitted by the laboratory will be included in the statistical treatment of data for the calculation of the Assigned Value and statistics of data of the analyte, to avoid that a single laboratory has a different statistical weight, depending on the number of its submitted results. The additional results are evaluated by assigning z-score values, using the Assigned Value and the Standard Deviation for Proficiency Assessment obtained from statistical treatment.
