Results: Uncertainties of imprecision were found within acceptable limits for all analytes except total protein (2.
Then, imprecision (both positive and negative analytical error) is applied to the extreme values of the bias band to create a band of error-transformed results.
Simulated assay bias was varied from -20% to 20% in increments of 5% to assess the effects of inaccuracy; simulated imprecision (expressed as CV) was varied from 0% to 20% in increments of 5%.
The allowable imprecision has been derived with different methods (1).
The limit of quantification (LOQ20%) for each analytical system was estimated from intermediate imprecision data (within-device or within-laboratory imprecision) as the lowest concentration that could be assayed with a CV of 20%.
To make the error estimations more robust, we used 2 different simulation models, 1 based on a gaussian distribution of total error and another that considered bias and imprecision separately.
These risks and uncertainties include, among other things, product price volatility, product demand, market competition, and risk inherent in the Company's international operations, imprecision in estimating product reserves and the Company's ability to replace and expand its holdings.
where Y is a result of a field creatinine assay, bias is the average bias between Y and a reference method for creatinine measurement, and imprecision includes imprecision sources from short-term (within-run or repeatability) and long-term (within-laboratory or reproducibility) and random patient interferences [called specimen-specific effects by Myers et al.
Royal Standard Minerals cautions that the statements made in this press release and other forward looking statements made on behalf of the Company may be affected by such other factors including, but not limited to, volatility of mineral prices, product demand, market competition, imprecision of mineral estimates, and other risks detailed herein and from time to time in the Securities and Exchange Commission filings of the Company.
1) recently presented an analysis of the effect of imprecision (CV) on false positive cardiac troponin I (cTnI) results.
The issue of assay imprecision as a potential factor affecting the clinical utility of a diagnostic device has been raised in recent literature.
These risks and uncertainties include, among other things, product price volatility, product demand, market competition, risk inherent in the Company's operations, imprecision in estimating product reserves and the Company's ability to replace and expand its real estate and software interests.
This is irrespective of the imprecision profile of the analytical method as well as the lack of standardization of cardiac troponin assays (1-7).
