Efforts are directed toward applications in clinical chemistry, environmental chemistry, food and nutrition, and forensics and homeland security, and include sample types such as tissues and biological fluids, air particulate matter and sediments, foods and dietary supplements, energetic materials, and pure substances (i.e., reference standards). Measurement services are provided through the development of definitive and reference methods, Standard Reference Materials (SRMs), and quality assurance programs.
Christina Jones, Benjamin Place and Aaron Urbas, together with CSD colleagues Regina Easley, Jason Waters, Laura Wood, Lee Yu, David Sheen and Werickson Rocha, received the 2019 MML Strategic Partnership Award for the establishment of a multidisciplinary team to conduct metrology research at NIST as part of the European Erasmus Mundus Joint Master in Quality in Analytical Laboratories (EMQAL) program.
Michael Nelson and Katrice Lippa, together with NIST colleagues Brian Lang, Jason Waters and Blaza Toman, received the Cooperation on International Traceability in Analytical Chemistry (CITAC) Best Paper Award for 2018 for their work on “A New Realization of SI for Organic Chemical Measurement: NIST PS1 Primary Standard for Quantitative NMR (Benzoic Acid)”.
