Measurement assurance program for FTIR analyses of deuterium oxide samples

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Analytical chemistry measurements require an installed criterion based assessment program to identify and control sources of error. This program should also gauge the uncertainty about the data. A self- assessment was performed of long established quality control practices against the characteristics of a comprehensive measurement assurance program. Opportunities for improvement were identified. This paper discusses the efforts to transform quality control practices into a complete measurement assurance program. The resulting program heightened the laboratory`s confidence in the data it generated, by providing real-time statistical information to control and determine measurement quality.
