Interlaboratory Analytical Comparison Study of Fatty Acid Concentrations in Human Serum- Results for Exercise 03: QA16FASER03

Michele M. Schantz

Abstract

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), at the request of the National Institute of Health’s (NIH’s) Office of Dietary Supplements (ODS) and in conjunction with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), initiated a third interlaboratory analytical comparison study of fatty acid concentrations in human serum in 2016. Three unknown serum samples were distributed along with Standard Reference Material (SRM) 1950 Metabolites in Frozen Human Plasma as the control sample. This is a performance-based program so participating laboratories were requested to use the analytical procedures that they typically use in their laboratories for these analyses and report data for those fatty acids that they typically quantify. The results from the third exercise are reported along with a summary of the analytical methods used by each laboratory.
