Measurement uncertainty in chemical analysis methods

Measurement uncertainty of analytical test results is a topic that plays for more than a decade in the chemical laboratories. Nevertheless, it has remained a subject which many people are uncomfortable with. They find it difficult. Still, they are obliged to determine the measurement uncertainty of their test methods because of the accreditation.
In this presentation we go into the various aspects of uncertainty in an overall approach, avoiding to become too technical. For understanding we must know what it is and where it comes from. For reasons of practicality we want to know how it is determined in a simple way. It is fascinating to see what great progress has been made here. Finally we want to have a quick view on what the near future will bring.
