SIM Program in Chemical Metrology

  • In order to most effectively address the unique needs of all 34 countries
  • within SIM, whose capabilities in chemical metrology span a very broad
  • range, we have initially focused SIM Chemical Metrology Working
  • Group activities on training and capability assessment rather than
  • participation in MRA-driven Key and Supplemental Comparisons
  • This has been accomplished through:
    • Outreach and Awareness Activities within the ANDIMET CAMET, CARIMET and SURAMET Subregions
    • Chemical Measurement Proficiency Assessment Comparison Studies
      • and follow-up activities
    • Training in CMC preparation and review
  • Long-Term Goal: Improved capabilities in chemical metrology and Increased participation in CCQM and CIPM MRA-related activities
sim chemical metrology awareness seminars

  • Argentina: Cholesterol in Serum and Auto Emission Gases

  • Venezuela: Ethanol in Water and Trace Metals in Water Subsequent Comparisons
  • Peru: Electrolytic Conductivity and pH Subsequent Results

SIM.8.13P Clinical Diagnostic Markers

(Organized by NIST)

  • Three Exercises
      • Cholesterol in Human Serum
      • Creatinine in Human Serum
      • Glucose in Human Serum

These three analytes were chosen because they

present different challenges for accurate measurements.

Cholesterol is lipophilic, glucose is highly water soluble,

and creatinine is present at much lower concentrations.

Ability to determine all of these accurately is evidence that

a laboratory has the capability to measure other well-defined

small organic molecules in serum.

slide27
Guidelines for Participation in Follow- UP Comparisons on Cholesterol in Serum and Auto Emission Gases

Who can Participate:

Officially: SIM NMIs or their officially designated labs who are currently or will be providing reference

Measurement services within a given country; PTB and/or BAM

Unofficially : Other Labs who can contribute scientifically to study; these

activities are not open to Commercial Labs unless designated by the Country’s NMI.

Methods to be used:

Cholesterol: Regionally or Internationally-recognized “higher order methods (e.g. ID/MS or Abel

Kendall; use of other Methods possible, but justification should be provided); Commercial kit-based

methods are not higher order

Auto Emission Gases:No method(s) specified; but general approach should be based on comparison

of unknown against a primary gas mixture standard. Primary gas standard(s) can either be prepared in-

house or purchased from an NMI. Calibration with a standards obtained from a Specialty Gas Company is

not recommended.

When:

Cholesterol: July – September, 2005

Auto Emissions: Sometimes in 2005; to be done along with industrial emissions

Expected Outcome:

Measurement Capability assessment for providing national measurement services to facilitate Increased

participation of SIM Countries in CCQM activities and CIPM MRA

slide28

SIM has the majority (over 1200) of ~4000QM CMCs for CIPM MRA Appendix C, but only from three institutions

  • SIM: 135 – NIST
  • Cycle 2: Over 1000 QM CMCs published in other Measurement Service Categories – March 2002
  • SIM: 938 – NIST, NRC, CENAM
  • Cycle 3: Interregional Review of ~750 Chemistry CMCs for October 2002 meeting of the JCRB
  • SIM: 117 – NIST, CENAM
  • Cycle 4: ~370 CMCs submitted for Interregional Review for April 2003
  • SIM: 34 – NIST, CENAM
  • Cycle 5: 194 CMCs submitted for Interregional Review for April 2004

program impact
Program Impact
  • Fifteen NMI’s or their designated labs within SIM are now regular participants in SIM intercomparison studies; up from three in 2002.
  • Seven countries are now participating in CCQM meetings and various activities; up from three (Canada, Mexico and U.S.) in 2002
  • Threecountries (U.S., Canada, Mexico ) have CMCs in the BIPM Key Comparison Database; Brazil has submitted CMCs for review this current cycle and Argentina, Chile and perhaps Uruguay will submit during the upcoming cycle.

  • TTBS, Trinidad & Tobago
  • Theme: “Metrology the Foundation, ensuring the viability of nations”
  • Signing of the CIPM MRA by CARICOM (Associate Membership)
  • Opportunities for Exhibitors
  • www.ttbs.org.tt
conclusions
Conclusions
  • The number of signatories is expected to increase in the near future.
  • SIM is taking actions to promote the CIPM MRA through Seminars aimed to create awareness in the authorities of the American Countries.
  • More technical work is needed to support the less developed countries and allow them to actively participate in the MRA.
