A statistical study on elemental analysis for 5 small organic compounds at 18 independent service providers across multiple countries demonstrates variation in the returned results that is outside journal guidelines (0.4%) in greater than 10% of measurements. The results indicate that a deviation of 0.4% is not a realistic journal requirement with the variability attributed to random error.
