Title: Conference on Detection Limits
Dates: Monday August 29 2016 - Wednesday August 31 2016
Location: DoubleTree Raleigh - Brownstone - University; Raleigh, NC
Abstracts are being solicited for the Conference on Detection Limits to be held Monday-Wednesday August 29-31, 2016 at the Doubletree by Hilton Raleigh Brownstone in Raleigh, North Carolina and is sponsored by ASTM Committee D22 on Air Quality.
The concept of detection limits in environmental measurements can vary in meaning dependent on technology, application or stakeholder community. Stakeholders in regulatory volatile organic compound (VOC) measurement will define MDL in a very different way than those interested in asbestos or mold determinations. Even within the same environmental agency where offices are tasked with similar activity, the definition for detection limit will have a different meaning dependent on the office that defines the term. In addition, navigating the concept of detection limits confronts stakeholders with a cornucopia of interrelated terms such as IDLs, LCMRLs, LDLs, LOQs, MDLs, PQLs, and RLs.
The goal of the 2016 ASTM Perspectives on Detection Limits Conference is to provide a forum to educate, discuss and debate the various aspects of detection limits as applied to the various fields of environmental measurements and to ascertain where collaborative activity under the ASTM International umbrella can serve to simply and coalesce some of the various terms under the concept of detection limits.
