Invitation letter – A new NMR Interlaboratory Comparison

Dear NMR users,

I warmly invite you to participate to the new International NMR Interlaboratory Comparison organized by Innovative Solutions.

For details, please download IS-NMR-ILC Scheme_vers2  and IS-NMR-ILC 001_2016 – Call for participation. This comparison is organized and funded by Innovative Solutions S.r.l. in the framework of the project “Recupero del Germoplasma Viticolo Pugliese” (Re.Ge.Vi.P.), “Progetti Integrati per la Biodiversità” – P.S.R. FEASR 2014-2020, Misura 10.2.1 “Progetti per la conservazione e valorizzazione delle risorse genetiche in agricoltura” – Trascinamento della Mis. 214 Az. 4 sub az. a) del PSR 2007-2013.

Since 2012, with the aim to encourage the use of qNMR in official methods, Innovative Solutions embarked on the organization of NMR inter-laboratory comparisons (NMR-ILCs) according to ISO/IEC 17043:2010 and reference normative therein. NMR-ILCs provide objective standards for individual laboratories, allow them to compare analytical results from different laboratories and represent a way to check the quality and the accuracy of the analytical job. I wish to recall the successful editions of the International NMR Interlaboratory Comparisons IS-NMR-ILC 001_2014 and of the first Italian NMR Interlaboratory Comparison organized on behalf of SAMER (laboratory of the Chamber of Commerce of Bari) and RETELAB (Network of the laboratories of the Italian Chambers of Commerce).

Results of these two ILC editions gave the following publications:

“Validation of NMR fingerprinting methods: effects of processing on measure reproducibility and laboratory performance assessment”. Vito Gallo, Nicola Intini, Piero Mastrorilli, Mario Latronico, Pasquale Scapicchio, Alessandra Milella, Antonino Rizzuti, Stefano Todisco, Antonello Pascazio, Maurizio Triggiani, Vitoantonio Bevilacqua, Carlos Cobas, Silvia Mari. NMR Inter-Laboratory Comparisons” series, Volume 2 (Sept 2016).
