As part of the radiation quality assurance program conducted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, calibrated radionuclide solutions are distributed to participating laboratories for instrument calibration and yield determinations. Laboratory performance studies involving the analysis of radionuclides in environmental media are also conducted. A summary is given of the results of the air filter cross-check program for 1973-1975. Examination of these results indicate that gross alpha is the least difficult (86 percent within the control limits for accuracy) and gross beta is the most difficult (39 percent within the control limits for accuracy) for the laboratories to analyze.
