Ensuring the reliability of measurements in response to the COVID-19 pandemic: CCQM Webinar and JCTLM Special Edition Newsletter, July 2020

A special edition JCTLM Newsletter focusing on reliability of measurements in COVID-19 diagnostics has been published, and summarizes submitted articles from JCTLM Members and Stakeholders.

The JCTLM recently invited its members and stakeholders to contribute material to the present newsletter focused on "reliability of measurements in COVID-19 diagnostics", to facilitate knowledge transfer on ongoing activities in our community. The primary purpose is to inform readers on new developments that focus on the "reliability of measurements in COVID-19 diagnostics", including reference materials, reference measurement methods, interlaboratory comparisons and relevant research, publications and seminars. What is provided in this newsletter is not an exhaustive list of activities, but only a summary of descriptions submitted, that are within the scope described above.

The newsletter can be found at https://www.bipm.org/utils/common/pdf/JCTLM/JCTLM-Newsletter-2020-COVID-19.pdf
