Abstract  

Analytical quality control is needed to ascertain the reliability of results from all types of analysis, including activation analysis. Thea priori precision has to be combined with the statistics of counting in order to reach a state of statistical control. The Analysis of Precision is used to verify the absence of unknown sources of variability and to ascertain the absence of systematic biases or calibration errors by analyzing samples or reference materials with accurately known content or actual samples by an independent method.
