Abstract

From 1984 to 2017, the National Institute of Standards and Technology coordinated the Micronutrients Measurement Quality Assurance Program (MMQAP) for laboratories that measure fat soluble vitamins and carotenoids in human serum and plasma. This report describes the design of and results for the Spring and Fall 1986 MMQAP measurement comparability improvement studies: 1) Round Robin VII Fat Soluble Vitamins and Carotenoids in Human Serum and 2) Round Robin VIII Fat Soluble Vitamins and Carotenoids in Human Serum. The first participant results for Round Robin VII were received March 5, 1986; the last results were received April 29, 1986. The first participant results for Round Robin VIII were received October 30, 1986; the last results were received February 6, 1987.
