External Quality Control with Spectroquant® Round Robin Test Solutions

A new service from Merck Millipore

Internal Quality Control (IQC) is essential, but not enough. Laboratories also need External Quality Assurance (EQA), confirmed by an impartial institute, to establish the validity and accuracy of their photometric methods and analyses. Merck Millipore makes the job easier and your results safer by offering you a complete EQA service. Our program not only provides a range of solutions for the tests themselves, but also an independent institute  for the evaluation and certification of your results

Simplify your EQA

To demonstrate the competence of your photometric methods, you are required to test a sample with an unknown content of a certain parameter. Our Spectroquant® Round Robin Test Solutions are optimized for this purpose. These multi-parameter standard solutions have undisclosed values, and only provide information regarding the parameters included and the possible  concentration range of the result. After you have completed the analysis, your results are evaluated by AQS Baden-Württemberg, Institute for Sanitary Engineering at Stuttgart University in Germany. They provide you a detailed feedback about the accuracy of your photometric methods, as well as a certificate stating whether results were within expectations. Merck Millipore uses this independent institute  to secure the transparency and validity of your EQA. This way, we make sure that no one can doubt your analytical skills.

Your benefits:
  • Easily available EQA
  • Complete package: test solutions, evaluation service and certificate
  • Results are evaluated by an independent external institute
