The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency sponsored a 1 1/2 day workshop to review the status of chemical test kit technology designed for testing lead (Pb) in solids. The goals of the workshop were to identify problems and limitations that could result in measurement error and to develop a set of performance parameters to generate or verify figures of merit that are comparable across the technology. The report summarizes the presentations, discussions and recommended approaches to experimentally determine the parameters of bias, precision, response range, calibration and interferences.
