Isotope-specific measurements as reference for iron (II + III) in serum in an external quality assessment scheme based on real-life samples
Isotope-specific methods have now matured to the stage that they can provide reference method values against which laboratories can evaluate their routine performance in regular external quality assessment schemes (EQAS). This service is being applied to laboratories doing essential and toxic element assays, for example for nutrition purposes and environmental health. Attempts are being made to utilise this expertise in clinical chemistry in an EQAS based on fresh frozen human serum, where a value is assigned to serum iron (II + III).
