The reader is referred to the CLSI documents for details. Table 2 shows the results of each of these calculations.
If this is true then using the principle of analysis of variance components: Within-Laboratory Precision Finally, we epp05 calculate the total or within-laboratory SD s l using the equation: Using the example data and assuming the claimed repeatability is an improbable CV of 1.
The first step is to calculate dp05 mean of the replicates for each day, then for each result subtract the mean for that day and square the resultant value.
We have no amendments or corrections for this standard. This standard is also available to be included in Standards Subscriptions. Repeatability Verification Value In order to compare the estimated repeatability to a claimed value we can calculate the critical or verification value using the equation: Marginal Effects for Model Objects.
Reproducibility is at the other extreme and refers to the closeness of agreement between results of successive measurements obtained under changed conditions time, operators, calibrators, reagents, and laboratory.
Various materials may be used to complete the assessment with either protocol. You can download and open this file to your own computer but DRM prevents opening this file on another computer, including a networked server. If the repeatability and within-laboratory SD are less than that indicated by the manufacturer, then the user has demonstrated precision consistent with the claim and no further calculations are required.
pe05 What can we improve? You should contact the package authors for that. If QC material is being used for the precision assessment, it should be different to that used to control the assay.
Evaluating Assay Precision
Elsevier Saunders; St Louis: Embedding an R snippet on your website. Precision claims by a manufacturer should be tested at at-least two levels, by running three replicates over five days. The following example relates to the verification of performance of calcium according to EPA2 using a five day protocol.
The first replicate on day 1 is 2. The next step is to calculate the variance for the daily means s b 2 using the equation. There is some variation in the terminology used but for the purposes of this discussion, repeatability, also known as within-run precision, is defined as the closeness of agreement between results of successive measurements obtained under identical conditions.
Finally, we can calculate the total or within-laboratory SD s l using the equation:.

Thus, factor ‘day’ is the top-level random factor variance componentfactor ‘run’ is nested within ‘day’. Support Center Support Center. If this is true then using the principle of wp05 of variance components:. Standards Subscriptions from ANSI provides a money-saving, multi-user solution for accessing standards.
However, for a method developed in-house a higher level of proof is required to validate the method, in which case EPA2 would be the appropriate guideline to use. Dr Douglas Chesher e-mail: Instead total precision within a laboratory within-laboratory precision will z2 assessed.
