Metallurgical round robin tests and reference materials

Metals science and software competence combined: the META<L>LOGIE division of pdv-software GmbH organizes interlaboratory comparisons in the metallurgical environment or for recycling processes. These round robin tests contribute to the accuracy of the analytics used, the determination of measurement uncertainties and the improvement of laboratory processes.

Professional distribution of material samples and the information/specifications for the uniform implementation and evaluation of the tests is carried out in accordance with DIN ISO 5725-2. Test results are made available to the participating laboratories anonymously. After completion of the evaluation, each participant receives an interlaboratory test evaluation and a certificate of participation.

The conclusions of the round robin tests result in reference materials of homogeneous composition suitable for validating methods or laboratories.

As distributors for META<L>LOGIE reference materials, we are happy to help you find and procure the reference materials and proficiency testing you need.
