A Guide to United States Personal Protective Equipment Compliance Requirements

February 1, 2023
Jennifer Marshall, Erik Puskar, Lisa Benson
This Guide addresses compliance requirements for personal protective Equipment (PPE) used in the workplace, except for PPE used in a nuclear or medical setting. Several U.S. federal agencies administer regulations associated with Personal Protective


December 16, 2022
Guodong Shao, Joe Hightower, William Schindel
Digital Twin has become an important technology for advanced manufacturing. However, to ensure that digital twins provide valuable decision support, the results generated by the digital twins must be trustworthy for real manufacturing systems. Model

Integrated Sensing and Communication: Enabling Techniques, Applications, Tools and Datasets, Standardization, and Future Directions

December 1, 2022
Jian Wang, Neeraj Varshney, Camillo Gentile, Steve Blandino, Jack Chuang, Nada T. Golmie
The design of integrated sensing and communication (ISAC) systems has drawn recent attention for its capacity to solve a number of challenges. Indeed, ISAC can enable numerous benefits, such as the sharing of spectrum resources, hardware, and software, and

Evaluating Inter-Laboratory Comparison Data

November 3, 2022
Enrico Frahm, John D. Wright
The primary purpose of inter-laboratory comparisons is to demonstrate that the uncertainty specifications of the calibration measurement capabilities of the participating laboratories are correct. The most common criterion for assessing a participating

Cryptographic Standards in a Post-Quantum Era

November 2, 2022
Dustin Moody, Angela Robinson
If large-scale quantum computers are ever built, they will compromise the security of many commonly used cryptographic algorithms. In response, the National Institute of Standards and Technology is in the process of standardizing new cryptographic

Semi-automated assembly of high-quality diploid human reference genomes

October 19, 2022
Erich Jarvis, Giulio Formenti, Jennifer McDaniel, Nathanael David Olson, Justin Wagner, Justin Zook, Kerstin Howe, Karen Miga
The current human reference genome, GRCh38, represents over 20 years of effort to generate a high-quality assembly, which has benefitted society. However, it still has many gaps and errors, and does not represent a biological genome as it is a blend of

Certification of Standard Reference Material(R) 915c Calcium Carbonate

September 20, 2022
Thomas W. Vetter, Jason Waters, Adam L. Pintar
Standard Reference Material (SRM) 915c Calcium Carbonate is certified as a chemical substance of known purity. It is intended for use in the calibration and standardization of procedures for calcium (Ca) determinations employed in clinical analysis and for

Overcoming Technological Barriers in Microfluidics: Leakage Testing

September 1, 2022
Vania Silverio, Suvajyoti Guha, Armelle Keiser, Rucha Natu, Darwin Reyes-Hernandez, Henne van Heeren, Nicolas Verplanck, Luke Herbertson
The miniaturization of laboratory procedures for Lab-on-Chip (LoC) devices and translation to various platforms such as single cell analysis or Organ-on-Chip (OoC) systems are revolutionizing the life sciences and biomedical fields. As a result

Advanced Communications Technologies Standards

August 29, 2022
Chris Greer, Robert B. Bohn, Tao Zhang
This report of the Advanced Communications Technologies Working Group of the Interagency Committee on Standards Policy (ICSP) provides an overview of Federal agency advanced communications technologies (ACT) standards activities and recommends standards

Report on the DHS/NIST Workshop on Standards for an Enduring Capability in Wastewater Surveillance for Public Health (SWWS Workshop)

August 16, 2022
Nancy Lin, Stephanie Servetas, Scott Jackson, Katrice Lippa, Kirsten Parratt, Philip Mattson, Clare Beahn, Mia Mattioli, Sally Gutierrez, Michael Focazio, Ted Smith, Paul Storella, Sarah Wright
Wastewater surveillance is a promising approach to monitor biological and chemical contaminants on a community level in support of public health and safety decisions. Wastewater surveillance has recently been shown highly effective for the early detection

Equations of State for n-Hexadecane and n-Docosane

August 5, 2022
Raffaela Romeo, Eric W. Lemmon
Equations of state for n-hexadecane (C16H34) and n-docosane (C22H46) have been developed as functions of the Helmholtz energy with independent variables of temperature and density. The equations were developed based on experimental values of density, speed
