19th CSITC Round Trial completed

Oct '11
The 19th Round Trial under the auspices of the Task Force on Commercial Standardization of Instrument Testing of Cotton (CSITC RT 2011-3) was conducted from July to September 2011. During the 19th Round Trial, 79 testing facilities from all continents submitted results from 136 instruments.

CSITC Round Trials serve cotton-testing laboratories in the same way that Greenwich serves international time zones. Each round trial consists of five samples prepared by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and sent to participating laboratories.

Each sample is tested in each laboratory six times a day for five days for all six CSITC parameters of micronaire, length, length uniformity, strength, Rd and +b, resulting in a total of 900 measurements from each instrument.

Results are downloaded electronically and sent to the Bremen Fibre Institute for evaluation. Because of the large number of observations over a five-day period, the resulting pattern of results can be used for detailed diagnostic evaluation.

Laboratories are not given grades or pass/fail results, and all results are confidential. The purpose of CSITC round trials are to facilitate improvements in both accuracy and precision among cotton testing laboratories around the world.
