Furthermore, since it is a natural product, the composition of the commercially available FCS varies from batch to batch, which impedes the reproducibility of results. These moral and scientific concerns demonstrate the urgency to switch to an FCS-free medium.
one typical example involves verification of the required repeatability and reproducibility of results on pliable products, such as plastics, obtained by inspection personnel with a manual gauge that exhibits first-order error.
Existing gels for cell culture are often animal derived, which can affect the reproducibility of results or, if synthetic, require coatings or coupling of celladhesive ligands.
Through mechanization of analyses there is increased reproducibility of results. Automation allows a reduction of human error and laboratory expenses, which is important in these economic times, as laboratories are challenged with budgetary constraints.
The major advantage of using cell culture for these applications is the consistency and reproducibility of results that can be obtained using a batch of clonal cells.
The DSC 2 differential scanning calorimeter from Mettler Toledo, Columbus, Ohio, is equipped with a new FRS 6 sensor, reportedly delivering better durability and reproducibility of results. On the DSC 2, the indium height:width ratio is improved to 19.5 mW/[degrees]C, and to a previously unprecedented 120 mW/[degrees]C when applying data optimization.
We initially introduced the concept into our practice in 2006 and we have since optimized the program based on clinical outcomes and reproducibility of results.
Apart from the improved accuracy and reproducibility of results, the EasyDirect[TM] titration software stores and collates all records and archives data to minimize confusion, errors and misinterpretation of results.
The epMotion P5073 and M5073 workstations automate and simplify what are traditionally complex, labor-intensive pipetting tasks, saving time and improving the reliability and reproducibility of results. The M5073 fully automates the process of DNA purification, providing reproducibility with high yield and purity.
However, the dependence on skilled operators, issues with the reproducibility of results, and poor documentation and archiving of findings are significant disadvantages.
A laboratory's personnel are responsible for ensuring both a test's accuracy, which refers to the test's ability to measure what it is supposed to measure, and its precision, which refers to reproducibility of results. Personnel check accuracy by having laboratory equipment assess control samples and comparing the results with "the best testing standards available." Evaluating a test's precision involves multiple analyses of the same sample; each analysis should produce a "similar" result.
