Octava Pink is designed to reduce concerns about missed cancers, while enabling many patients with false negative
results to seek earlier diagnosis and treatment.
One approach is to ask explicitly how many false positives one can accept for every false negative
, or how many false negatives
one can accept for every false positive.
As we have sought to show, our current best practices for the management of risks from well-characterized low-frequency hazards will have an inevitable dominance of false positives over true positives and false negatives
In this context, reductions in the false negative
rate of Pap smears become more compelling.
In rate terms, that means there is a false negative
rate of 68.
Such variables may affect the rate of false positive or false negative
results, he says.
An in house validation of the ThinPrep Imaging System conducted at Yale University reported a false-negative rate "well below standard false negative
Its signature recognition was excellent out of the box, handling our demanding false positives, false negative
and evasion tests easily, and was the only product to score 100 percent resistance to false positives out of the box, crucial for not blocking legitimate traffic.
The workbench processes MS data up to 10 times faster than alternative approaches, while greatly reducing false positive and false negative
results for reliable protein identification.
Based on multiplex-PCR, the kits detect multiple regions of pathogen DNA and include internal and external controls, greatly reducing false positive and false negative
Every false positive brings multiple federal agencies stumbling to the scene with no real plan, and every false negative
risks complacency in the face of a lethal threat.
This condition may also be responsible for false negative
Hybrid Capture II (HC II) test results in women who also may have had possibly pre-cancerous cervical cells.
False positives occurred in nonallergic patients, and false negatives
occurred in allergic patients.
An unknown component in the diluting solution that is used to test blood and serum samples may produce "not confirmed" results for samples that are found to be positive with the initial test, resulting in false negatives
One of the headaches caused by spam-fighting programs is false negatives
that fail to block spare and false positives, where the software labels a legitimate e-mail as advertising.
