Immunology reference ranges and uncertainty of measurement
If you have any queries regarding the provenance of the
displayed reference ranges or the uncertainty of measurement, the
laboratory has data for all quantitative assays which can be

Uncertainty of measurement is the doubt that exists about the
result of any measurement.
In essence, from a sample testing perspective, the uncertainty
of measurement is needed to determine a pass or fail and the
quality of that result.
In general, no measurement or test is perfect and the
imperfections (such as variations due to operator or measuring
systems) may give rise to error of measurement in the result.
