Abstract

Part 1 of the ' Report to Participants' described the background and objectives of the interlaboratory comparison IMEP-17, organised by the IRMM in collaboration with the C-AQ IFCC and members of EQALM. Part 1 summarised also information about the production and characterisation of the two serum materials that were used. The participants' results from all laboratories from measurements of nineteen components in Material 1 and lithium in Material 2 were displayed.

Part 2 presented the participants results for ten components in Material 2 (modified serum). Laboratory performance was displayed with Youden graphs. Special attention was paid to the performance of individual measurement procedures and analytical quality specifications, i.e. performance goals for routine analytical work was discussed and compared with the results in IMEP-17. The properties of the test materials were discusses from the point of view of commutability.

This report (Part 3) displays the results of all nineteen components in Material 1 and for lithium in Material 2. The purpose of the report is to provide each regional coordinator with a more detailed picture of the participants'' results than that given in the combined report mentioned above.
