1600 – 1700 Coffee Break, 

During  coffee break some information about an intended common statement

Suggestions to all manufacturers of magnesium electrodes:

National consensus about high and low margins of ionized serum magnesium are less important, as long as multinational manufacturers do not agree about calculation quotients or modes of comparison between their products, whereby increased stress upon the diagnostical value of magnesium dynamics could be helpful. Such an agreement would immediately increase acceptance of the measurement of ionized magnesium; scientists and manufacturers would profit.

Any suggestions along those lines would be helpful. We plan to coordinate them and send them for publication in form of a communiqué at least to Magnesium Bulletin.
