If the claim is given as a percentage, it has to be translated to a variance by multiplying the average of the measured values. When entering new data we recommend using New Dataset to create a new precision dataset. Elsevier Saunders; St Louis: The model assumes that all the U d are identically distributed, and similarly that the V dr are identically distributed and that the W drs are identically distributed.


If this is true then using the principle of analysis of variance components:. Selection and analytical evaluation of methods with statistical techniques.

Pe5 total precision, calculated from the imprecision specification and the concentration level, and a hypothesis test to test if the observed precision is within the goal are shown.

Frequently asked questions What are the different editions? Open in a separate window. The EP5 guidelines are intended both for developers of such methods and for users of methods who want to verify the validity of given precision claims, or just measure their own precision. Thus we need to find the Estimation of Repeatability and Within-Laboratory Precision The following example relates to the verification of performance of calcium according to EPA2 using a five day protocol. The EPA2 protocol is similar except that the experiment is undertaken with three replicates over five days for at least two levels.

Evaluating Assay Precision

For a normal distribution the measure of imprecision is the standard deviation SD. The figure of 5. Line 11 shows the same quantities as line 9, but for the total, within-laboratory, precision. Within-Laboratory Precision Finally, we can calculate the total or within-laboratory SD s l using the equation: For example, on day 1 the average of the three values is pe5.


To specify a clsj SD: On day 1 the mean of the three replicates was 1. Unfortunately this approach is insufficient, as it tends to under-estimate repeatability, as the operating conditions in effect at the time may not reflect usual operating parameters.

Quality csi should clso made regularly, based on quality control samples that are measured along with the rest clsl the experiment. The between-runs and between-days precision estimates are also given on lines 10 and Comparing against a performance claim Total precision within device or laboratory and repeatability within run can be compared against a manufacturer’s claim to demonstrate a method is operating correctly. Download latest release Version 5. What are perpetual vs annual licenses What is per-user vs floating-user licenses What is maintenance?

A precision plot see below shows the standardized observations for each day. Furthermore, the protocol defines a procedure for dealing with outliers. Alternatively one can use the variance, which is simply the square of the SD.

For the purposes of this discussion reproducibility will not be considered, as it involves multiple laboratories.

Evaluating Assay Precision

The reader is referred to the CLSI documents for details. This period is intended for the experimenter to learn the experimental protocol, and also to put quality controls into place, and perform an initial evaluation of precision and other acceptance tests, e. Run the Analyse-it trouble-shooter For customers The Concentration if the pre-assigned concentration was specified and the Mean concentration of all replicates are shown. Enter Allowable imprecision as lcsi absolute value, as a percentage of analyte concentration, or enter cksi values for a combination.

If two or more concentrations are used, they can be handled as separate data sets, and be analyzed independently of each other in Genex. The first step is to calculate the mean of the replicates for each day, then for each result subtract the mean for that day and square the resultant value. Evaluation of Results As alluded to above, EPA2 is generally used to verify that a method is performing as is claimed by the manufacturer. If a day is excluded due e5 missing values the observations for that day are not plotted, but if a day is cldi due to outliers determined using the preliminary SD, see below the day’s observations rp5 shown as red crosses.


In order to compare the estimated repeatability to a claimed value we can calculate the critical or verification value using the equation:.

Evaluation of Precision Performance (EP5-A2)

Precision claims by a manufacturer should be tested at at-least two levels, by running three replicates over five days. It looks like you are browsing from a non-Windows device. The estimated between-samples variance the repeatabilityshown on line 9 is 2. Furthermore, EP5 allows testing of the estimated precisions against given precisions, e. A spreadsheet for assisting with the calculations described in this article is available from the AACB web-site.

Save and re-apply filters Read the blog post. Observations clso any day excluded due to outlier observations are shown as red crosses on the precision plot see above. When evaluating the precision of an assay, the trivial approach for estimating repeatability for any given level is to perform 20 replicate analyses in a single run on a single day.

This feature is only available in GenEx Enterprise. There should be at least one quality control QC sample in each run. We’ve been developing intuitive high-quality statistical software at an affordable price, backed up by fast friendly customer service for over 25 years CLSI document EPA2 describes the protocols that should be undertaken by the user to verify precision e5 by a manufacturer.
