Active Standard ASTM D7850 | Developed by Subcommittee: D11.40
Book of Standards Volume: 09.02
This specification covers the biological quality specifications or requirements, or both, for Industry Reference Materials (IRMs) used to conduct product, specification, and development testing in the rubber and carbon black industries. A new lot of material can be accepted as an IRM only if complies with the requirements prescribed in this specification. However, there are other requirements given in Practice D4678 that shall be met before a candidate material can be formally accepted as a biological IRM. Biological IRMs covered by the specification include ammoniated latex antigenic protein, rabbit anti-AL antisera, and mouse monoclonal antibody.
This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.
1.1 This specification covers the biological quality specifications or requirements, or both, for Industry Reference Materials (IRMs) as cited in Practice D4678 and other standards.
1.2 IRMs, as evaluated and referenced in Practice D4678, are vitally important to conduct product, specification, and development testing in the rubber and carbon black industries.
1.3 Before a new lot of material can be accepted as an IRM, it must comply with the specifications prescribed in this specification. However, these specifications are only part of the requirements. Other requirements as given in Practice D4678 shall be met before a candidate material can be formally accepted as a biological IRM.
