National Institute of Standards and Technology, or from the Joint Committee for Traceability in Laboratory Clai, or from similar organizations may be appropriate if the user wishes to estimate the bias relative to the assigned concentrations of such materials. Evaluation of precision performance of quantitative measurement methods. Enter Total and Repeatability precision as absolute values, as percentages of analyte concentration, or as a combination, from the manufacturer’s claims.

Leave Run 2 empty to perform a 1 run analysis. clsl

Meet regulatory compliance demands with analytical and diagnostic method validation and verification. For the purposes of this discussion reproducibility will not be considered, as it involves multiple laboratories. The next step is to calculate the variance for the daily means s b 2 using the equation.

Evaluating Assay Precision

If you are using version 3. It looks like you are browsing from a non-Windows device. Part of the process of verifying or validating a method to confirm that it is suitable for use is an assessment of precision.


If the p-value is significant the observed precision is outside the goal. Table 2 shows the results of each of these calculations.

Evaluating Assay Precision

To allow for this possibility, the user calculates a e;5 limit” based on the published standard deviation and the size of the user’s experiment. If the estimated bias is less than allowable bias, the bias is acceptable.

Typically, there is no way to estimate the uncertainty of the “assayed” values, which is needed to determine if the calculated bias is statistically significant. T is best calculated in a spreadsheet and is given by:. This could be useful, for example, if the intent of the experiment was to estimate the clei of one laboratory in a system relative to another, or to the mean of the laboratories in a system.

If QC material is being used for the precision assessment, it should be different to that used to control the assay. Please review our privacy policy. Because the precision experiment has so many replicate measurements, collected over several days, results from the precision experiment may be used to make a reliable estimate of the bias of the measurement procedure relative to the assigned target values of the sample materials used in the experiment.


If the pre-assigned concentration is not known, the mean is used as an estimate of the true concentration. Precision claims by a manufacturer should be tested at at-least two levels, by running three replicates over five days.

Run the Analyse-it trouble-shooter For customers Internationally recognized high order reference materials, such as a material from the U. Allowable precision can be specified in absolute units of the analyte, as a percentage of analyte concentration, or as a combination of the two in which case the larger of the absolute and percentage concentration is used.

Instead total precision within a laboratory within-laboratory precision will be assessed. For n measurements we have:.

The repeatability and within-laboratory standard deviations are then compared to the claimed or published standard deviations. Thus the variance of the daily means is:. Dr Douglas Chesher e-mail: The document includes tables to simplify the calculation of the verification limit. Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute. The powerful statistical analysis you’d expect from an expensive statistics package.
