Quality Assurance of Contaminant Measurements in Marine Mammal Tissuesby Stephen A. Wise, Natl Inst of Standards and, Technology, Gaithersburg, United States,
Abstract: The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), in conjunction with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is developing a program to improve the quality and comparability of analytical measurements for contaminants in marine mammal tissues. This quality assurance program consists of the (1) preparation of marine mammal tissue control materials, (2) interlaboratory comparison exercises, and (3) development of standard reference materials. The development and status of the NOAA/NIST Marine Mammal Quality Assurance Program is described in this contribution.
