2013 Collaborative Study of CORESTA Monitor #7 (CM7) for the Determination of Test Piece Weight, TPM, Water, Nicotine, NFDPM, Carbon Monoxide and Puff Count Obtained under Mainstream ‘ISO’ and ‘Intense’ Smoking Regimes

RAC Technical Report

February 2015

The CORESTA Routine Analytical Chemistry Sub Group has been given the responsibility to organize the annual testing of the CORESTA Monitor test piece. The 2013 study was designed to:

  • measure mainstream ISO yields of nicotine-free dry particulate matter (NFDPM), nicotine and carbon monoxide (CO) to verify the stability of the current monitor test piece CM7 against previously obtained yields;
  • determine intra- and inter-laboratory variability for the measured ISO and Intense smoke yields for the CM7;
  • verify the conditioned weight for the CM7 against previously obtained weights;
  • measure mainstream smoke yields of nicotine-free dry particulate matter (NFDPM), nicotine and carbon monoxide (CO) under the Health Canada Intense Smoking Regime for laboratory accreditation purposes.
