Abstract  

The International Atomic Energy Agency Marine Environmental Laboratory (IAEA-MEL) conducted an intercomparison exercise for the “Trace elements and methyl mercury in fish scallop: IAEA-452” in 2009. The Neutron Activation Analysis (NAA) laboratory at PINSTECH, Pakistan took part in this exercise. Comparison with the IAEA results showed that of the 18 elements reported to the IAEA 7 had unacceptable z-scores while the data for two elements was questionable (2< |z-score| <3). Upon investigation it was discovered that the large number of elements having unacceptable z-scores was due to human error and the greater difficulty in analyzing biological samples which have low amounts of trace elements. Therefore selection of values corresponding to matrix matched reference materials (RMs), such as IAEA-436 and IAEA-407, and to non-interfering peaks the results obtained became comparable to the IAEA results with only the result for As having |z-score|> 3.
