Applications of Reference Materials in Analytical Chemistryby Ron Walker
Synopses & Reviews
Reference materials play an important role in analytical chemistry, where they are used by analysts for a variety of purposes, including: checking and calibrating instruments; validating methods and estimating the uncertainty of analytical measurements; checking laboratory and analyst performance; and internal quality control. This book provides guidance and information for the users of certified reference materials (CRMs), explaining how they can best be used to achieve valid analytical measurements and improve quality in the analytical laboratory. General information on CRMs and how they are produced sets the scene for readers. The statistics relating to CRM use are then explained in an easy-to-understand manner, and this is followed by sections covering the main uses of CRMs. Detailed worked examples are used throughout. Structured and comprehensive in coverage, this book will be welcomed by all users of certified reference materials.
Book News Annotation:
Certified reference materials are a major way that laboratories can check the results of their analysis against the results of the same analysis conducted at different times and places. Speculating that more laboratories do not use them because there is not sufficient guidance available, Roper and colleagues from the Laboratory of the Government Chemist, Teddington, Britain explain how they can be best used to achieve analytical measurement results that are fit for their purpose. They describe the primary applications to instrument calibration, method validation, checking laboratory performance, and assessing the accuracy of analytical data.
