If the p-value is significant the observed precision is statistically worse than the claim. The reader is referred to the CLSI documents for details. To compare precision against a manufacturers claim: Evaluation of Results As alluded to above, EPA2 is generally used to verify that a method is performing as is claimed by the manufacturer.
Frequently asked questions What ep the different editions?
If you are using version 3. The n and Days statistics are adjusted to show the number of days analysed and the number excluded from analysis. Select any cell in the range containing the dataset dlsi analyse, then click Analyse on the Analyse-it toolbar, click Precision then click 1 and 2 Run over Days.
Patient samples, reference materials, proficiency testing samples, or control materials may be used as the test samples, provided there is sufficient sample material for testing each sample five times per run for five to seven runs. 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 clsu the experiment.
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.
If this is true cldi using the principle of analysis of variance components:.
Select any cell in the range containing the dataset to analyse, then click Precision on the Analyse-it tab, then click 1 and 2 Run over Days. All blog posts Subscribe to blog updates. Table 2 shows the results of each of these calculations. For n measurements we have:. Estimating Precision 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.
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 user must evaluate the estimated bias versus allowable bias.
The powerful statistical analysis you’d expect from an expensive statistics package. There were two problems with this approach.

Observations for any day excluded due to outlier observations are shown as red crosses on the precision plot see above. The requirements of the test are: The following example relates to the verification of performance of calcium according to EPA2 using a five day protocol. Repeatability Verification Value In order to compare the estimated repeatability to a claimed value we can c,si the critical or verification value using the equation: Download latest release Version 5.
CLSI document EPA2 describes the protocols that should be undertaken by the user to cls precision claims by a manufacturer. For example, on day 1 the average of the three values is 2.

CLSI EPA3: verification of precision and estimation of bias – Westgard
These include pooled patient samples, quality control material, or commercial standard material with known values. It may be especially useful when patient samples are difficult to obtain for a traditional comparison of methods experiment.
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.
Internationally recognized high order reference materials, such as a material from the U.
Evaluating Assay Precision
The width of the verification interval depends on the uncertainty of the target value of the reference material and the standard error of the calculated mean concentration from the experiment. To allow for this possibility, the user calculates a “verification limit” based on the published standard deviation and the size of the user’s experiment. Support Center Support Center.
