1st Round Pilot Study (Airborne Particulates) a Success

The Gravimetric Determination of Airborne Particulate Matter Pilot Round 1 results are available to pilot participants as of March 4, 2022. Thank you to the 40 laboratories that participated in the 1st round of the pilot study (conducted December 15, 2021 - January 17, 2022).

The purpose of the pilot study was to evaluate the technical capability to produce stable, homogeneous samples, determine if there is an impact on the resulting data (net mass loading in mg) between sample generation procedures, evaluate the resulting data to ensure it fits within the accepted IHPAT statistics and participant evaluation processes and procedures, and gather end-user feedback on the samples.

The Round 2 Pilot samples are expected to ship in early April. If you are interested in staying in the loop on the progress of this new analyte class, please let us know by filling out the 2nd round pilot sign-up form.
