Interlaboratory Analytical Comparison Study of Total Fatty Acid Concentrations in Human Serum: Results for Exercise 02: QA15FASER02

Michele M. Schantz

Abstract

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), in conjunction with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and NIH’s Office of Dietary Supplements (ODS), initiated a second interlaboratory analytical comparison study of total fatty acid concentrations in human serum in 2015. Three unknown serum samples were distributed along with the three levels of candidate Standard Reference Material (SRM) 2378 as control samples. 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 second exercise are reported along with a summary of the analytical methods used by each laboratory.
