Invitation to Participate in CSITC Round Trials

The ICAC Task Force on Commercial Standardization of Instrument Testing of Cotton (CSITC) is conducting the eleventh round of official CSITC Round Trials in 2017. The round trials consist of quarterly tests. Laboratories can opt to participate for the year or for any quarter to suit their seasonal schedules. All cotton fiber testing laboratories capable of measuring cotton samples with rapid testing instruments, often referred to as high volume instruments (HVI), and based on the Universal Calibration Cotton Standards for micronaire, upper-half mean length, length uniformity index, strength, rd color, and +b color are encouraged to participate.

Participants will benefit by receiving detailed diagnostic feedback that can be utilized to demonstrate measurement performance to customers and to address measurement related problems. Results will confirm the participant's ability to provide reproducible test measurements that are based on the established international standards.

Please read the invitation file for more information.
