Metrology and Quality Assurance in Chemistry

Contact: Prof. Ivo Leito,

The research area of metrology and quality assurance in chemistry – involving measurement uncertainty, method validation, interlaboratory comparisons, etc – supports all our research directions where measurements or chemical analyses are involved. It is also crucially important for our teaching work – EACH Erasmus Mundus and AMS study programmes as well as two MOOC courses – Estimation of Measurement Uncertainty in Chemical Analysis and Validation of LC/MS Methods. It is also essential for functioning of the UT Testing Centre where our group is strongly involved.

Important achievements and results include:

Examples of Measurement Uncertainty Budgets in Analytical Chemistry
