COMMISSION ON ISOTOPE SPECIFIC MEASUREMENTS AS TRACEABLE
Title: Trace Elements in Human Serum
Measurement Evaluation Programme (IMEP-7)
De Bièvre and P.
Remarks: Human health
Completion Date: 1998
Measurement of human serum for physiologically or toxicologically
important trace elements remains an important objective of medical
science. Interlaboratory studies are conducted within limited regions
around the world, but comparability of data is always difficult to
define. The present programme will involve laboratories from all corners
of the world and will provide an opportunity to compare normal methods
and laboratory performance by region or by laboratory. The study is
planned to examine 6 elements at natural levels.
Nine elements were certified or assigned for the human serum IMEP.
The participants programme was completed in 1998 shortly after the
