The NIST ITS-90 Fixed-Point Cell Mini-Workshop is offered every year and covers the realization of ITS-90 fixed-point cells over the range from the mercury triple point to the zinc freezing point for the calibration of SPRTs and the development of uncertainty statements for the fixed-point cells and subsequently SPRT calibrations.
