Quality Assurance and Uncertainty Budget

Two of the most relevant quality parameters that have to be taken into consideration, are limit of detection and uncertainty budget. Limit of detection defines the capacity of the method and which activity levels can be measured. Analysis of uncertainties associated to the analysis provides a measure of dispersion of the values, which could be reasonably attributed to the measurand. It helps understanding the method and detecting sources of errors.
