In 1975 the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency distributed calibrated solutions of polonium-210 to laboratories interested in participating in an intercomparison study of polonium-210 analysis. Participants were asked to perform a quantitative radioactivity analysis of the solution. The results reported by all the participating laboratories are given here. Fifty-four percent of the reported activity values were within + or -10 percent of the activity value certified by the National Bureau of Standards.
