Through the tremendous efforts of the Adenovirus Reference Material Working Group (ARMWG), an adenovirus reference material (ARM) is now available from the American Type Culture Collection (ATCC).

Although general statements have been made regarding how the ARM should be used, there is no formal directive or specific set of instructions detailing its application in the field. The goals of this paper are (1) to briefly review the objectives for development and implementation of the ARM, (2) to describe a critical assumption necessary to meet those objectives, (3) to outline specific approaches for using the ARM, and (4) to highlight the need for a working group to address the issues raised in the process...
