Assessing measurement uncertainty: a series refresher

In the September 2020 digital issue, Pathology in Practice concatenates seven articles written by Dr Stephen MacDonald on various aspects of measurement uncertainty evaluation, and their importance commercially and professionally.

Assay validation and verification are vitally important aspects of the accreditation process, especially for staff in clinical laboratories wishing to achieve or extend UK Accreditation Service (UKAS) approval of their facilities and services. Method validation and verification provide objective evidence that an assay or method is fit for purpose, meaning that the particular requirements for a specific intended use are fulfilled. Against this background, techniques for assessing measurement uncertainty are vital tools in the process of assay/method validation and verification, in terms of understanding the random and systematic errors that affect measurement accuracy, as the seven articles published in the September issue illustrate.
