2019 Collaborative Study of CORESTA Monitor 9 (CM9) 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

August 2020 Ref. RAC-224-CTR

The CORESTA Routine Analytical Chemistry Sub-Group has been given the responsibility to organize the annual testing of the CORESTA Monitor test piece.

The 2019 study was designed:

  • to measure mainstream ISO (ISO 3308) and ISO Intense (ISO 20778) smoke yields of nicotine-free dry particulate matter (NFDPM), nicotine (NIC) and carbon monoxide (CO) to verify the current monitor test piece CM9
  • to determine intra- and inter-laboratory variability for the measured ISO and ISO Intense smoke yields for the CM9
  • to verify the conditioned weight for the CM9

The analytical results for the CM9 test piece lead to the conclusion that they can be used as monitor test pieces in smoke analysis.
