Foliage and litterfall reference samples
The Federal Research and Training Centre for Forests, Natural Hazards and Landscape in Vienna has prepared and offers reference samples (origin Austria) with known element concentrations to support the QA/QC progress in European foliage laboratories. These samples can be used e.g. for method validation.

The price for the samples are 100 Euros for 100ml (appr. 50g) for participants - and 150 Euros for other interested persons. The maximum sample amount per year and laboratory is limited to 3x50g per sample type. The income will be used for supporting this ringtest programme. The postage for sending the reference samples outside of the EU/EWR is 25 Euros, inside the EU/EWR it is free of charge.
