Aiming at the problem of balancing the cost and accuracy in calibration of industrial robots, a low-cost three-dimensional high-precision contact self-calibration system for industrial robots was developed. The three-dimensional calibrator is installed in the end position of the robot (TCP). Using three orthogonal high-precision position sensors, the D-H parameters of industrial robots can be calibrated online with low cost and high precision by the calibration algorithm of D-H parameters of industrial machines and precise iterative measurement of a special four ball calibration table. A comparison with a laser tracker showed that the maximum En value of each measurement point was 0.63 and the comparison result was satisfactory.

Nucleic acid is the carrier of genetic information. With the rapid development of in vitro diagnostic technology based on nucleic acid amplification, nucleic acid detection is widely used in medical diagnosis, forensic identification, import and export inspection and quarantine, species evolution research, etc. Nucleic acid reference materials are a gold standard to ensure the accuracy and traceability of nucleic acid test results. Both the WHO and the Chinese Food and Drug Administration stipulate that in vitro diagnostic reagents need to use international and national reference materials or factory-level standards to guarantee the traceability and accuracy. The analysis of the carcinogenic mechanism of HER2, BRAF, EGFR and other gene mutations has prompted the listing of a series of targeted therapies such as trastuzumab, veilofenib, and rituximab, which has caused a large gap in Chinese nucleic acid reference materials. Due to the complex structure, easy degradation and large molecular weight of nucleic acid, it is difficult to meet the requirements of uniformity and stability. Therefore, development of nucleic acid reference materials is slow. This article briefly reviews preparation methods of nucleic acid reference materials and domestic and abroad research progress, for the efficient development of nucleic acid reference materials for in vitro diagnostics.

To accurately evaluate the uncertainty in the calibration factor of a β-ray dosemeter, a traceable thin window ionization chamber was used to measure the reference dose rate at the reference position of the β-ray radiation field, and then the β-ray dosemeter was placed in the same position for measurement to obtain the indicated value. The calibration factor of the β-ray dosemeter was obtained, and the uncertainty in the calibration factor was evaluated. The main sources of uncertainty include the uniformity of the reference radiation field, the uniformity of the position in the measurement process of the substitution method, and the statistical standard deviation of the indicated value. The results show that in the calibration process, the uncertainty in the calibration factor can be reduced by improving the uniformity of the reference radiation field and the uniformity of the reference position.

A QuEChERS sample pretreatment method coupled with gas chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry was established to determine 30 pesticide residues in Brassica oleracea. The results show a good linear relationship for the 30 pesticides in the concentration ranges of 50~250 μg/L, with correlation coefficients between 0.9966 and 0.9994. The average recoveries of this method were in the range of 77.46%~114.92% with the expanded uncertainty between ±0.0098 and ±0.0606. It provides a theoretical basis for determining the results near the critical point of the maximum residue in B. oleracea.

Optical measurement are often affected by low signal-to-noise ratios (SNR), resulting in larger measurement uncertainty. Measurement of the bidirectional reflectance distribution function (BRDF) in the near-infrared is particularly vulnerable to environmental interference due to weak infrared signals. The signal-to-noise ratio problem of optical measurement systems generally arises from detection systems. For infrared measurement systems, choppers and lock-in amplifiers are often used for weak signal measurement, but noise problems are also introduced at the same time. Therefore, this article focuses on the SNR of BRDF measurement in the near-infrared, aiming at the detector, chopper and lock-in amplifier, analyzing the source of noise, and proposing suppression methods and optimization measures to improve the signal-to-noise ratio. The optimized measurement system has improved anti-noise ability compared with that before optimization, and the repeatability has been improved from 2.1% to 1.6%.

As an important measuring instrument in the trade settlement of heat measurement, the heat meter must ensure the accuracy and long-term reliability. Domestic heat meters have been put into the market with frequent quality problems, and some of them have been replaced by imported products. Although there are many problems in the use of domestic meters, they are ultimately attributed to poor long-term stability. This is reflected in the durability test, which is also the biggest and most important difference between domestic heat meters and European product standards in terms of technical requirements. This test establishes a study based on 4000 cycles of variable temperature test for domestic heat meters and compares it with the 2400 h+300 h test method, so as to realize the improvement and continuation of durability evaluation of domestic heat meter. It is the first time in China to realize comprehensive technical evaluation of heat meters under long-term application laboratory conditions, which contributes to improving the level of heat meter product quality in China, promoting the transformation and upgrading of the heat meter industry, and facilitating the heat supply metering reform.
