Abstract

The one week NIST-SIM chemical metrology training opportunity was designed to provide SIM NMI/DI laboratory personnel with in-depth classroom and hands-on laboratory experience for the implementation of isotope dilution/mass spectrometry (ID/MS) methods in the application of clinical marker (cholesterol, glucose, and creatinine) measurements. A total of six NMI/DIs expressed an initial interest in this training course, and include the Instituto Nacional de Tecnología Industrial (INTI) – Argentina, Instituto Nacional de Metrologia, Qualidade e Tecnologia (INMETRO) – Brazil, Instituto de Salud Pública (ISP) – Chile, Instituto Nacional de Metrología de Colombia (INM (CO)) – Colombia, Centro Nacional de Metrología (CENAM) – Mexico, and Laboratorio Tecnológico del Uruguay (LATU) – Uruguay, Instituto Nacional Decalidad (INACAL)-Peru. The course was offered by the Chemical Sciences Division at NIST in Gaithersburg, MD July 18-22, 2016.
