|Abstract:||The “uncertainty function” introduced by Thompson et al. estimates the reproducibility standard deviation (SR) as a function of concentration. This model was successfully applied to a data set derived from three proficiency testing schemes aiming at the quantification of three toxic elements (cadmium, lead and mercury) in blood and urine. A threshold concentration was determined for each element. Below this concentration SR is found to be constant, while above it the reproducibility relative standard deviation is constant. This model allows the a priori estimation of standard deviation for performance assessment for proficiency testing rounds.|
