Section 14 - General Methods and Instrumentation


14.01 - Healthcare Informatics

Volume 14.01 includes specifications and guides that address the Continuity of Case Record (CCR), transcription, documentation, transfer, management, security, and privacy of health information and the content of electronic health records. Other standards cover controlled health vocabularies for healthcare informatics and eXtensible Markup Language (XML) Document Type Definitions (DTD).

14.02 - Particle and Spray Characterization; Forensic Sciences; Accreditation and Certification; Forensic Psychophysiology; Nanotechnology; Forensic Engineering

Forensic Psychophysiology-guides and practices address polygraph training and recommended practices for the design, conduct, and interpretation of psychophysiological detection of deception examinations. Forensic Sciences-the majority of standards in this section deal with criminalistics, including forensic analysis, examination of physical evidence, documenting, labeling, storing, and retrieving evidence. Conformity Assessment-criteria for the evaluation of testing laboratories and proficiency testing by interlaboratory comparisons. Particle and Spray Characterization-standards cover sieving and nonsieving methods and screening media. Nanotechnology-standards cover terminology, environmental and occupational health and safety, education and characterization, including physical, chemical, and toxicological properties. Forensic Engineering-addresses the scientific, engineering, ethical, and legal considerations inherent in forensic engineering investigations, reporting, and testimony.

14.03 - Temperature Measurement

Specifications, guides, and test methods cover liquid-in-glass, thermometers and hydrometers, thermocouples, medical thermometry, radiation thermometry, and resistance thermometers, and liquid-in-glass thermometers with low hazard precision liquids.

14.04 - Laboratory Apparatus; Degradation of Materials; SI; Oxygen Fire Safety

Laboratory Apparatus-includes specifications for sampling and testing of laboratory glassware, calibration of laboratory apparatus, weighing devices, and much more. Weathering and Durability-provides standards that evaluate outdoor and laboratory accelerated weathering tests. Topics cover biological deterioration, joint weathering projects, natural and environmental exposure tests, and service life prediction. SI-the Unified American National Standard IEEE/ASTM SI-10 Standard for the Use of the International System of Units (SI0): The Modern Metric System. Oxygen Fire Safety-standards for controlling hazards and risks in oxygen systems.

14.05 - Statistical Methods; Hazard Potential of Chemicals; Thermal Measurements; Manufacture of Pharmaceutical Products

Hazard Potential of Chemicals-covers flash point, thermal stability and instability, explosibility, and autoignition temperatures of chemicals. Quality and Statistics-practices and guides evaluate statistical methods, sampling and data analysis, and quality statements. Thermal Measurements-practices and test methods cover thermal analysis and thermophysical properties. Manufacture of Pharmaceutical Products-covers the application of process analytical technology (PAT) within the pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical industry, highlighting PAT system management, implementation, and practices. New to this edition are standards on hazardous biological materials, characterization and identification of biological systems, and unit processes and validation.
