MetadataShow full item record
The following protocols describe how ACT will verify the environmental performance characteristics of commercial-ready, or prototype, algal toxin detection field kits through the evaluation of objective and quality assured data. Specifically, the evaluation will demonstrate capacity (performance, ease of use, reliability) of new field portable technologies for measuring harmful algal bloom (HAB) toxins and HAB toxin-producing species. ACT will verify range of detection, accuracy, and precision against accepted reference methods, and will help quantify matrix effects or challenges that may affect sensor performance. The goal of this evaluation program is to provide technology users with an independent and credible assessment of instrument performance in a variety of environments. Therefore, the data and information on performance characteristics will cover pertinent information that users need. ACT will not simply verify vendor claims, but instead looks to the broader community to .....
