This document itemizes the experiments, attendees and instruments used in the evaluation of the Rossi/Focardi eCat.
I have included links to NyTeknik (English version), because they have reported on every experiment and press release.
See lenr.qumbu.com for information about the eCat and analyses of the published experiments.

Note 1 : From Mats Lewan : Email between Alan Fletcher and Mats Lewan
Note 2 : The multimeter DM 201 was originally provided by Rossi, but Lewan calibrated it against his own multimeter, and then kept it in his possession for all other experiments.
For the January report, Celani emphasizes:
/** All the measurements were made, INDEPENDENTLY, from a Researcher (and Technicians) of Bologna University. Rossi made only supervision about key safety aspects.
The measurement of the internal temperatures T1,T2,T3 were used by Rossi to control the eCat (manually adjusting the resistor power). They were completely under Rossi's control, and are processed by Lab View software, which presumably has the ability to pre-process the displayed values. (And some of which were lost, in the Dec/Jan trials.) Some of these temperatures were cross-checked using other instruments. For example, in January the Bologna team made direct measurements through the top outlet of the eCat.
The Oct 6 setup was special, and Rossi specifically said that it would be done with his thermocouples, but they were examined and calibrated afterwards. The offset between the input and output thermocouples was established by running cold water through the heat exchanger secondary circuit before the Ecat was started.
Oct 28 was entirely by agreement between Rossi and "The Customer". Nobody else was even allowed to photograph any of the instruments.
Personal note : I do not see a large problem with experimenters using standard, stand-alone equipment provided by Rossi -- unless you believe that he tampered with them all. He did not object to any calibrations.
Version 2 : Lewan DID say that the electrical instruments in Oct 6 were his.
Version 4 : University of Bologna Clarifies Relationship With Rossi : "Bianchini is not an employee of our university but a student and should not have used the Department of Physics as his affiliation in writing the safety report." Rossi confirms that Bianchini is a specialist under contract to him. However, his measurements were used ONLY to show that the eCat's radiation was at safe levels. The university also clarified that Levi etc were acting in their private capacity, and not as representatives of the University : " These behaviors are not illicit and do not carry any formal or informal implication on the level of involvement of the University of Bologna on the matter."
