Our reference material capability
We are a trusted government service. We use our expertise to:
- produce the highest quality reference materials with legal traceability
- deliver personalised and tailored services.
The NMI quantitative SARS-CoV-2 certified reference material is available for purchase. It contains inactivated SARS-CoV-2 virus. It is designed to calibrate RT-qPCR assays and test the limit of detection for all target genes.
The certificate of analysis gives details of how we certified the concentration values, traceable to the International System of Units. It also shows how we estimated the stability.
The purchase price is $1000 per set of six vials (Australia only, excluding GST), with a 25% discount for orders of 10 sets or more. There is an additional charge of $300 per order for shipping on dry ice.
The international price is AUD2,000 per set of six vials, with 25% discount for orders of 10 or more.
Cost of delivery on dry ice varies from AUD1,500 to AUD3,000 depending on country.
We welcome requests for custom pricing for large orders.
For enquiries or to place orders, email BioRM@measurement.gov.au. Please include name, delivery address and number of sets when ordering.
We provide calibration standards for:
We prepare our reference materials in accordance with our accreditation from the National Association of Testing Authorities (NATA) for producing chemical reference materials.
Our reference materials have demonstrated homogeneity and stability.
Our certified reference materials have established metrological traceability to the SI unit for mass (kg). We report all purity values, stated as a mass fraction, with the associated uncertainty in the certificate of analysis.
We maintain a limited collection of agrochemical and veterinary materials obtained from various sources. We provide them with the most current certification information available.
You can use our matrix reference materials to validate and quality control your analysis methods.
We have NATA accreditation for producing matrix reference materials and assigning reference values under:
