  • Reference materials for clinical analysis

    Reference materials for clinical analysis

    Millions of blood tests are performed each year around the world, and clinical chemistry is one example where the importance of accurate testing is evident. The next time your blood is analysed, remember that many of the data values are directly traceable to the JRC's reference materials.

  • Reference materials for food analysis

    Reference materials for food analysis

    The certified reference materials distributed by the JRC give measurement laboratories a means to validate analytical methods, to assess the quality of the measurement results and to demonstrate their traceability to stated references such as the SI units. Over the years, the JRC has developed a broad variety of food related reference materials covering a wide range of analyte/matrix combinations.

  • Reference materials for GMO analysis

    Reference materials for GMO analysis

    For the implementation of the European legislation that regulates the authorisation and the labelling of genetically modified organisms (GMOs), the JRC develops, produces and distributes certified reference materials. These CRMs are used for the calibration or quality control of GMO quantification measurements.

  • Reference materials for materials science

    Reference materials for materials science

    Reference materials for materials science underpin many industrial processes and give companies as well as regulators the confidence in these measurements that strengthen assessments of legal as well as company and customer-specific specifications. This work supports the common European market and helps European companies to compete on a global scale.

  • Reference materials for microbiology and pathogens

    Reference materials for microbiology and pathogens

    The regular occurrence of food borne pathogen related outbreaks in the EU, the ongoing struggle with pathogens in health care and public health as well as the security threat related to the potential misuse of pathogens emphasise the need for an adequate and reliable monitoring system and preparedness against these risks. Consequently the JRC is aiming at maintaining a high level of quality of the measurements which have to be carried out in this context...

  • Reference materials for nuclear safeguards, safety and security

    Reference materials for nuclear safeguards, safety and security

    Verification and detection in safeguarding nuclear material, conformity of information on materials and processes in nuclear forensics, as well as response in nuclear security are based on reliable measurement results with appropriate quality control tools as prerequisite. JRC provides nuclear material measurement standards, nuclear reference measurements and conformity assessment tools to safeguards authorities, industry and the international...

  • Reference materials for nanotechnology

    Reference materials for nanotechnology

    The JRC's unique position as a European institution allows it to focus on developing challenging and ground-breaking reference materials. For example, the JRC produced the world's first certified nanoparticle reference material based on industry-sourced nanoparticles.
