2021 Día Mundial de la Metrología en Argentina

Bienvenidos al Día Internacional de la Metrología 2021: Mediciones para la Salud Este tema fue elegido para crear conciencia sobre el rol clave que juega la Metrología en la salud y en el bienestar de las personas.

El Día Internacional de la Metrología es una celebración anual de la firma de la Convención del Metro el 20 de mayo de 1875, por representantes de diecisiete naciones, entre ellas la Argentina. La Convención define el marco de la colaboración global en la ciencia de las mediciones y en sus aplicaciones en la industria, el comercio y la sociedad en general. El objetivo original de la Convención del Metro- contribuir a la uniformidad de las mediciones a nivel global mantiene hoy su relevancia, tal como en 1875.

El Día Internacional de la Metrología es organizado conjuntamente por el Bureau Internacional de Pesas y Medidas (BIPM), y la Organización Internacional de Metrología Legal (OIML). El INTI, como Instituto Nacional de Metrología en la Argentina, se suma a esta celebración con la presente jornada.

Charlas:

  • “Desarrollo de herramientas para la verificación de métodos de diagnóstico molecular de SARS-CoV-2” por Romina Buenaventura del Departamento de Virología del Instituto Malbrán.
  • “¿Sirven los termómetros infrarrojos para medir la temperatura corporal?” por Marcelo Jimenez Rebagliati del Departamento de Termodinámica del INTI.
  • “Trazabilidad metrológica en equipamiento electromédico” por Silvia Diaz Monnier de la Dirección Técnica de Electrónica de INTI.
  • “La calidad de los medicamentos a través del desarrollo de materiales de referencia” por Laura Hermida, subgerenta de Industria y Servicios del INTI.

Consultative Committee for Ionizing Radiation (CCRI)

Posted: 2021-05-05 @ 15:50 UTC+2

 
 

BIPM/CCRI Workshop: Metrology for Radionuclide Therapy

Safe and effective cancer therapy using ionizing radiation is only possible due to accurate measurement of the radiation dose delivered to the tumour and surrounding tissues. These measurements are particularly complex for radionuclide therapy and involve measuring the activity of the radionuclide administered to the patient, determining the distribution of the radiopharmaceutical in the body and estimating the radiation dose delivered. This field, which combines biology, dosimetry and radionuclide metrology, is at an early stage.

To mark World Metrology Day, the Consultative Committee for Ionizing Radiation (CCRI) and the Bureau International des Poids et Mesures (BIPM) are organizing a workshop on metrology for radionuclide therapy. The aim is to identify the current needs and gaps in metrology. Speakers are from the NIST, the University of Würzburg, the Medical University of Marburg, the NPL and the IAEA.

The workshop will be held on 20 May 2021, 11:00-13:00 UTC. Please register in advance on this link.

Joint Committee for Traceability
in Laboratory Medicine (JCTLM)

Posted: 2021-05-18 @ 12:35 UTC+2

 
 

The Joint Committee for Traceability in Laboratory Medicine (JCTLM) is celebrating World Metrology Day on 20 May 2021.

The JCTLM is an international consortium that promotes the global standardization of clinical laboratory test results, and provides information on reference materials, reference measurement methods and services that are available from around the world. 

The aim of JCTLM is to support world-wide comparability, reliability and equivalence of measurement results in laboratory medicine, for the purpose of improving health care and facilitating national and international trade in in vitro diagnostic devices, by:

  • promoting the concept of traceability of measurement results to the Système International d’Unités (SI) or, where necessary, to other internationally agreed references;
  • evaluating reference materials, reference measurement procedures and reference measurement services for laboratory medicine with respect to conformity with appropriate international standards;
  • producing educational materials and activities promoting the value of traceability in laboratory medicine and raising awareness amongst stakeholders;
  • promoting close links between Reference Laboratories in Laboratory Medicine and National Metrology Institutes;
  • facilitating the identification and prioritization of measurands requiring international traceability and comparability and thereby encouraging appropriate organizations to accept responsibility for the development of suitable reference methods and measurement procedures and certified reference materials;
  • encouraging the in vitro diagnostic (IVD) industry to apply the agreed reference measurement systems;
  • encouraging EQAS organizers to apply the agreed reference measurement systems. 

Watch the videos on measurements in Laboratory Medicine for broader perspectives on the importance of metrological traceability in laboratory medicine for individual patients and for risk assessments in populations.

"Virtual Open-doors Day" in CENAM México to celebrate World Metrology Day

For the last 11 years, World Metrology Day has been celebrated at CENAM allowing access to the public, opening the doors of CENAM laboratories to all those interested in metrology and experiencing scientific activities, from children to adults.

This event has been of increasing interest to the population of Mexico; in view of the health emergency caused by the SARS-CoV2 in 2020 two related events were held: a two-day event in collaboration with international metrology companies, and a one-day virtual event to serve all interested parties with a peak of 800 concurrent participants.

Last year allowed us to strengthen the collaboration with other leading organizations and the academia to help provide solutions in the pandemic situation. This year we are glad to have invited speakers from these collaboration projects in addition to speakers from CENAM.

Repeating the last years’ experience, this year we have organized a virtual Open Day that will allow us to safely serve an even larger audience: on Thursday 20 and Friday 21 May 2021 there will be remote conferences and virtual visits to CENAM laboratories. We are pleased to invite you through the following link to the activities that we have prepared: http://www.cenam.mx/pabiertas/

2021 World Metrology Day in Montenegro

On the occasion of World Metrology Day 2021, the Bureau of Metrology, Montenegro published a new brochure for students, teachers and professors of primary and secondary schools, students and professors of the Medical Faculty of the University of Montenegro, but also for all those who focus on health care or influence decision-making which is important for health protection.

The brochure entitled "Measurement for Health" presents the activities of the Bureau of Metrology and national calibration laboratories, metrology as a science and its importance in various fields, and especially its application in the field of health.

In previous years, to mark World Metrology Day the Bureau of Metrology organized an event called "Open Days" during which our institution was visited by students, teachers and professors.
Considering that during 2021, in order to respect the epidemiological measures, we are not able to organize visits to the Bureau of Metrology laboratories, we decided to acquaint educational and other relevant institutions with our work, and the importance and application of metrology in everyday life.

With the exception of primary and secondary schools in Montenegro, the brochure was distributed to the competent ministries and other state administration bodies, general and specialist hospitals, health centers, university members and non-governmental organizations involved in the promotion of science.

You can view the brochure in English at this link and in Montenegrin at this link.

In addition, we produced a short video from our national calibration laboratories, which can be found here

The video, as well as the brochure, were published on the Bureau of Metrology website www.metrologija.me, as well as on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn.
