Abstract
The evaluation of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's 'Reference Method for the Determination of Lead in Suspended Particulate Matter Collected from Ambient Air' among four laboratories and the quantitation by additional techniques are summarized. Coefficients of variation of 10% for the lead reference method were obtained. Optical emission spectrometry produced data that are statistically indistinguishable from data obtained from the reference atomic absorption spectrometry technique.
