Abstract

The National Institute of Standards and Technology coordinates the Micronutrients Measurement Quality Assurance Program (MMQAP) for laboratories that measure fat- and water-soluble vitamins and carotenoids in human serum and plasma. This report describes the design of and results for the Winter, Spring and Fall 1992 MMQAP measurement comparability improvement studies: 1) Round Robin XXIV Fat-Soluble Vitamins and Carotenoids in Human Serum, 2) Round Robin XXV Fat-Soluble Vitamins and Carotenoids in Human Serum, 3) Round Robin XXVI Fat-Soluble Vitamins and Carotenoids in Human Serum, and 4) Round Robin 3 Ascorbic Acid in Human Serum. The materials for Round Robin XXIV were shipped to participants in January 1992; participants were requested to provide their measurement results by March 6, 1992. The materials for Round Robin XXV were shipped to participants in May 1992; participants were requested to provide their measurement results by June 26, 1992. The materials for Round Robin XXVI were shipped to participants in August 1992; participants were requested to provide their measurement results by October 16, 1992. The sample materials for Round Robin 3 were distributed in August 1992 with results due by September 26, 1992.
